Astronauts on the International Space Station recently enjoyed a fresh supply of leafy greens, thanks in large part to the efforts of Expedition 64 crew member Michael Hopkins.

NASA’s SpaceX Crew-1 mission commander took the lead on conducting four Vegetable Production System (Veggie) experiments, with the last two wrapping up after an April 13 harvest. VEG-03K and VEG-03L tested a new space crop, ‘Amara’ mustard, and a previously grown crop, ‘Extra Dwarf’ pak choi. They were grown for 64 days, the longest leafy greens have grown on station.

国际空间站上的宇航员最近吃到了新鲜的绿叶蔬菜,这在很程度上要归功于第64号远征队的机组人员迈克尔·霍普金斯。

NASA的SpaceX载人1号任务指挥官带头进行了四项蔬菜生产系统(Veggie)实验,最后两项实验在4月13日的收获后结束。VEG-03K和VEG-03L测试了一种新的太空作物 “Amara”芥菜,以及一种以前种植的作物“Extra Dwarf”白菜。它们生长了64天,这是绿叶蔬菜在空间站生长的最长时间
