Robotic Delivery of Food on Campuses
Robots are being used on campuses in the United States.  Parcels, food delivery and groceries can be taken by 100 pound robots owned by Starship. They are used at a variety of stores to deliver in places like UCLA where I recently visited and have been increasingly used on campuses throughout the U.S.A. They operate at a fraction of the cost of normal delivery . The items are delivered at the time the customer requests by way of a mobile app.They navigate around people and objects.The robots are electrically powered so they are green and clean.

Spicing it up in Space
Astronauts may someday not have to worry about bland food when going to Mars.  A new experiment growing food for deeper  space exploration and habitation was launched in early summer 2021 involving chili plant seedlings. Chili plants made the news in the last few days  as they  grew flowers on the Space Station after being pollinated with a little help from astronauts.
