Meet the self-aware space zucchini that accompanied astronaut Don Pettit to the International Space Station. It is a story about sprouting life, reaching for the stars (or just a little light), and boldly going where no summer squash has gone before.
Pettit chronicled the zucchini’s adventures in a series of diary entries while in orbit. New Hampshire Public Radio’s Word of Mouth has adapted it for radio, and it is pretty much the best thing ever. Well done, fearless sprout.
