America's space agency NASA's missions keep providing new information about space. However, this time NASA astronauts have discovered something that may seem like a joke. Small-sized tomatoes were grown as an experiment on the International Space Station (ISS). One of these tomatoes was missing.

According to a report by Live Science, after harvesting these tomatoes in March this year, samples of these were given to every astronaut of the ISS. The tomato found by NASA astronaut Frank Rubio was kept in a bag but it floated away before he could taste it. Frank himself had given information about this. “I spent many hours trying to find that thing. I'm sure that tomato will show up and prove me right,” he said in September during a livestream event to mark one year since the unexpected. Frank was supposed to spend six months on the ISS but this period was doubled due to problems with Russia's Soyuz spacecraft.

Due to microgravity on the ISS, things can easily float away and become difficult to find. There was a joke about a tomato getting lost in space. However, this tomato has been discovered. “Our good friend Frank Rubio was blamed for eating a tomato. However, he can be said to be innocent,” NASA astronaut Jasmin Moghbeli said during a livestream event this week marking 25 years of the ISS. Have discovered.” The size of ISS is like a big house and stuff is being stored on it for the last years. In such a situation, it is not surprising that anything goes missing.

When Frank was asked about it by reporters in October, about two weeks after returning home from an extended period in space, he said, “I spent many hours looking for the missing tomato and I couldn't find it.” “This could be due to high humidity. This could have caused the condition of the tomatoes to be such that it would be difficult to find out what it was. I am hopeful that it will be found someday.”
