This tomato orbiting Earth might be the coolest thing you’ll see all day – and no this photo of produce floating in space is not PhotoShopped.

And it’s not a sign that Attack of the Killer Tomatoes is about to happen for real.

It’s a snap from Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata aboard the International Space Station. He tweeted the photo writing: "One fresh tomato for dinner makes us happy in space. It came up with us on Soyuz TMA-11M two weeks ago."

 

 

Insalata Caprese in space has a nice ring to it don’t you think?

Hat tip to Gizmodo for pointing out the photo. We’ve included more of Wakata’s spectacular Twitter pics below.
