NASA Missing Space Tomatoes: Tomatoes lost in space for about 8 months have been found. While sharing this information, American space agency NASA has shared the footage of tomatoes. According to the information, last year astronaut Frank Rubio lost tomatoes during an experiment in the International Space Station (ISS). He lost the tomatoes grown in space after they were plucked from the plants. Then his fellow astronauts joked that Rubio might have eaten tomatoes. However, now this matter has come to an end.

NASA has not told where the tomatoes were found in the space station. It has definitely been revealed that he was found in a plastic bag. The special thing is that the tomatoes were slightly shriveled, but no fungus was found in them. NASA has shared a video related to this. Her caption read that 2 tomatoes have been recovered by astronaut Frank Rubio, almost a year after they were accidentally lost. This proves that Rubio did not eat tomatoes. Tomatoes were found flattened in a plastic bag. There was no microorganism or fungal growth in them.

An interesting fact is that the tomatoes which were lost were grown by NASA without soil. The space agency used hydroponic and aeroponic nutrition techniques. NASA has been experimenting with growing vegetables in space for many years and has also been successful in it. These experiments could be useful for future space missions, when astronauts will have to stay in space for long periods of time and have limited supplies available from Earth.

It has been written in the NDTV report that by being busy in gardening in space, astronauts have a good time and they also get psychological benefits from it.
