Astronauts taste test chile peppers grown in space

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Variety is the spice of life. And if you're living on the International Space Station, your menu includes neither too much variety nor much spice. How much Tang can you drink?

A picture shows her holding a truly tasty-looking taco - well, not holding the taco. It floats in front of her.

It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
