Hello. This is 6 Minute English from BBC Learning English. I’m Neil.

Last November Nasa launched a very unusual home delivery service – a rocket carrying four tonnes of supplies to the ISS – the International Space Station.
Among the scientific equipment were twelve bottles of red wine from the famous Bordeaux region of France.
The astronauts might have wanted a glass of wine with dinner, but the real purpose of the bottles was to explore the possibility of producing food and drink in space – not for astronauts but for people back on Earth.
In today’s programme we’ll be finding out how growing plants in space can develop crops which are more productive and more resistant to climate change here on Earth.
