DNA Analysis: The passengers who went to the space station have done wonders by growing chillies there. They have now brought those chillies back to the earth, which will soon be analyzed and further research will be carried out.
DNA Analysis on Space-Grown Chile: You must have planted some fruit or vegetable plant in the house at one time or another. You must have been very happy when you first got fruits or vegetables in it. Scientists of ISS i.e. International Space Station have also got some similar happiness.
Chillies were grown on the space station
Scientists had grown chillies on the space station. This 137-day mission has been completed and a special team of scientists has returned to Earth with these peppers from SpaceX’s Dragon Endeavor Spacecraft.

took more than two weeks to grow
These chillies are red in color and are somewhat different from the chillies that grow on the earth. In space, chillies grew about 2 weeks late compared to Earth. The stem of these chilli plants is absolutely straight, whereas the stems of chilli plants growing around you on earth are not straight, they are oblique or inclined. This in itself is a very unique thing. Scientists have named this research as Plant habitat-04. This research will give information to scientists about the methods of growing vegetables and crops in space.
Search for life on other planets
With its help, scientists are trying to grow crops in space. Through this, he will try to understand how beneficial vegetables and crops can be easily grown in space. Its direct benefit can be given to astronauts on long missions in space. If the research on growing vegetables and crops is successful, then the astronauts will be able to grow vegetables for themselves on long missions. They will be able to get a taste of the vegetables and fruits of the earth in space. With the help of this, the search for life on other planets will also get a new force.
