Actually... that is a false urban legend that Tang was developed for the space program. Or at least I am pretty sure it is false.

is changed when NASA decided to use it in 1962 during John Glenn's Mercury flight and later in 1965 for the Gemini program. In both instances, the Tang was used to improve the poor taste of the water from the life support system.

I too, seem to recall that Tang was not invented for space travel, but as a result of orange crop failures(for whatever reasons I cannot recall), and we all still had to have our OJ in the morning.

Better lettuce grown in space, than a mushroom grown in cow-plop!

But those mushrooms make you see funny stuff about 30 minutes after you eat them.

Yes I would. I love romaine lettuce. Just had a salad last night. Yummy.

Maybe. Is it genetically engineered?

Did Monsanto sponsor this experiment, and does NASA have to return all seeds produced by this lettuce to them?
