    Space: the final frontier


    In "The Martian" Mark Watney (Matt Damon) successfully planted and grew potatoes in space. I think growing food in space is gonna be a reality in the near future.

    Orange Zinnia - The First Flower Blooms in Space

    A bright orange zinnia has grown for the first time in space, in zero gravity, and without soil. The zinnia, an edible flowering plant, was planted aboard the International Space Station's Veggie chamber last November to help provide precursory information about other flowering plants that could be grown in space. NASA has already grown plants, such as lettuce and wheat, in space but never a flower has bloomed.

        I second that. Now when they start growing beef up there I'll think about relocating.

                        Is it true that without a spacesuit a person would explode in space?
                        I don't know.

                              Have there been any documented experiments? Or is this just what they tell us?
                              I don't know.
