Space Tomato

ISS Tomato

This tomato was cruising at about 4.8 miles per second approximately 230 miles above the surface of the earth. Then Astronaut Koichi Wakata of JAXA ate it. Even astronauts tweet pics of their food. Their backdrop is just more impressive than my dining room table.

    Atomic Toasters will return to our regularly scheduled gravity defying tomatoes, really big complicated machines, obsolete/obscure/obtuse/obfuscated objets d'tech and the plant and product of the Mesta Machine Company just as soon as the new gerbil gets here.
