Astronauts eat 70% less food than people on Earth. Astronauts eat the same food as people on Earth, but their food is specially preserved to avoid contamination by bacteria. To combat the problem of microgravity, food is carefully contained and drinks are packaged as dehydrated powders. The as…

There is one advantage to manned space shuttles; they can allow us to observe and prepare for the inevitable difficulties that humans will encounter if long periods of space flight are necessary. It does not offer any other scientific benefit, and anything greater than a low-earth orbit would just b…

The primary reason is to reduce the payload weight the rocket must lift, every pound lifted into orbit costs about $10,000 to get it there. Water needed to rehydrate it before it is eaten is not taken into orbit, it is available free as the waste product of the fuel cells that generate electricity f…

Food. Its dried, the atmosphere is not normal (low pressure, dry, high O2), and because of the low pressure the boiling point is low. So it's much like the food served to those souls that try to climb Everest.

Yes there is. Food on earth has a lot of water content in it, which makes up for a lot of its mass. Space food has been dehydrated to remove as much water from it as possible to make it lighter. This helps with the weight of the space shuttles.

It would probably be harder, as the food would be floating everywhere and you would have to catch it before you could eat it. If you are talking about digesting the food, it may be harder as the food, although in your stomach, will still not have gravity to help you eat it.

Controlling the environment is key to this process. That's the idea behind the use of hydroponics.

Then change y…
