What does fresh fruit look like in space? Follow NASA on Twitter to find out. Astronauts aboard the International Space Station tweeted in celebration after fresh fruit arrived on board. NASA send out a celebratory picture of a fresh apple floating in free space, after the consignment of produce made it into orbit courtesy of the recent Cygnus cargo craft that arrived with, among other things, a cadre of ants. Fresh fruit and water are regularly sent to the space station aboard the regular, though relatively infrequent cargo shipments. Former ISS Commander Chris Hadfield wrote in his recent book that as well as the fruit, astronauts on ISS look forward to the breath of fresh air—literally—provided when the cargo pod opens for the first time.
