  文字稿// Marz Ketchup

 Yeah... A little more... All right!

Oh, hi. Sorry! I'm just putting a little tomato ketchup on my hot dog. Wait,
you didn't think… no! Eww! It was ketchup! I love ketchup! 我愛番茄醬!

You know who else usually loves ketchup? Astronauts!
太空人也愛番茄醬。

A lot of the food they bring to space is dried and flavorless, so ketchup and
other sauces can help make it taste better.
太空食物乾乾的,沒什麼味道,加一些醬會好吃一點。

Maybe one day they'll even be able to make ketchup in space, on Mars.

Yep! Scientists have created a special type of ketchup called Marz Ketchup.
科學家做出火星番茄醬!

They made it using tomatoes grown here on earth. But they used conditions
like those on Mars! The conditions on Mars are very different to Earth. The
soil, temperature, and water conditions are all different.
因為火星的泥土、溫度跟水,都跟地球不一樣,所以科學家在地球上模擬了火星的環境來種番茄。

But they could still grow tomatoes, they could still make ketchup, and it
still tasted good!
做出來的番茄醬,一樣很好吃!

Cool! Maybe one day, when people do go to Mars, the one thing they won't have
to pack is ketchup!
