Space Food

Space foods are food products made for consumption by astronauts in outer space.
Just like us, spacemen need to eat to for fill their hunger.
nowone really knows sorry but face now one will know
by drying out real food (such as ice-cream, strawberries, etc.) by  deep freezing them, so the astronauts can take nutritional food in  to space, without taking excess liquids and weight.
Sure, but it would be largely unmeasurable until you re-entered a gravity well. Eat more calories than you burn in any environment and you will gain mass.
anything that is really crumby
  When John Glenn became the first American to orbit the earth in 1962, he had many tasks to perform, one of which was experimentation with the consumption of food in weightless conditions. While Glenn found this task easy, some experts were concerned that because of the weightless conditions...
It isn't. Most early space foods were, but modern space food often  has the same texture as the equivalent foods you eat everyday.
anything freeze dried
maurice krug invented space food in 1956

Basically, you open the packet and eat it.
They make their own oxygen by mixing nitrogen with carbon dioxide.
Yes, well first you hydrate it then you eat or cook it in a microwave or oven.
No, because it will crumble and get into an electrical socket.
Of course there aren't any space colonies just yet, but when when we do build these settlements colonists will eventually grow certain plants for food so that people won't have to bring any from Earth. Eventually, Livestock such as cows, sheep, goats, and perhaps pigs will be sent from Earth,...
Freeze dried fruits and vegetables were first manufactured for consumption in space, but were later domesticated
Yuri Gagarin's favorite food was "belyashi" - it's a kind of small roasted meat pie. At least Gagarin said so in one interview.
they use cheese
So far not a single lady landed on the moon.
They freeze dry it.
Do you mean how do you survive in space? In that case you would need a space suit. Either that or stay in your space shuttle/ship.
NASA does not make freeze dried food, they buy it from contractors  that make it to NASA specifications (like everything else NASA  uses).   Freeze dried foods are made by freezing the food, then placing it  in a vacuum chamber. The vacuum causes the frozen water in the food  to sublime ...
Controlling the environment is key to this process. That's the idea behind the use of hydroponics. By giving your plants 24 hours of sunlight each day for it's first month of life, you will see three months worth of growth. Then drop back to 16 hours a day (for one month to six weeks). Then change...
Cold, dry, bathed in radiation.
Many but not all types of space food are freeze dried and water  must be added before they can be eaten. Some types of space  food are ready to eat and don't need anything added.
Star Bar. Galaxy Chocolate. Space dust.
yes unfortunately it does (google search "space debris" for more information
It depends. If the temperature is a constant temperature similar to Earth's, the liquid would appear like a ball of floating liquid, similar to the liquid-metal mercury on Earth. If the temperature is cold or freezing, the liquid will freeze and be pulled into orbit by a moon, asteroid, comet...
The commander of Apollo 11 was Neil Armstrong, the command pilot of Apollo 11 was Michael Colins. the Lunar module pilot of Apollo 11 was Edwin Aldrin.
As much as they would consume per day on Earth.
Yes, but it really isn't necessary on most spacecraft. The fuel  cells that are used to generate electricity to power the spacecraft  electronics produce plenty of water as a waste product. This water  is equivalent to distilled water in purity.
Space shuttles are pressurized so that the oxygen stays inside the shuttle.
To be perfectly honest with you, I am not certain just how the consumption of carbonated beverages are facilitated while wearing a space suit. The atmosphere of the moon is not conducive to human life without a space suit. And of course, there are as yet no root beer stands on the Earth's Moon, that...
That some of the food might end up not proccessed right, so it turns spoiled and some astronauts may eat it and become sick..
Because when you go in space there is no oxygen and the food taste funny.
healthy food or grinned up food
so far, scientist have not found any life in space except for those on space.
If you take normal food into space it will crumble apart and get everywhere. So they freeze dry it so it doesn't get into an electrical socket or something.
Space food consists of food, the same stuff we eat on Earth. It's packaged differently for more convenient use in zero gravity, and it's prepared in advance because cooking in zero gravity is difficult. If you have to do more than add water and heat it to eating temperature, it's too complicated for...
Since many foods containing chocolate are eaten on the ISS, I don't understand where this question's coming from. See related links.
They eat freeze dried food.
We have found powerful sources of X-rays that can be best explained  by matter heating up just before falling into a black hole. We have  also found cases of stars orbiting unseen objects that have a very  high mass but are unseen and seem quite small. By our current  understanding only a black...
The purpose and application of space food are to keep astronauts  healthy and at   peak physical performance. This is accomplished through the process  of having   the astronauts eat the food that they  have brought to orbit with them. In perfect   accordance with this system, no space...
freshwater has always been available since the early days using hydrogen/oxygen fuel cells to provide electricity. however reverse osmosis process applied to wastewater also provides some now.
Not really. They outer body covering is called chitin.
Astronauts eat 70% less food than people on Earth.\n. \nAstronauts eat the same food as people on Earth, but their food is specially preserved to avoid contamination by bacteria.\n. \nTo combat the problem of microgravity, food is carefully contained and drinks are packaged as dehydrated powders....
no it's common sence
Pillsbury made something called a "space food stick" and that was the name that was on the box. It was foil encased rods of something that tasted like solid chocolate pudding. If Tang was the nectar of the gods, then Space Food Sticks were their ambrosia.
basically pureed foods in tubes similar to toothpaste tubes.
pureed goo in a tube resembling a toothpaste tube.
Space food doesn't stay on the plate unless it is sticky. If it is  not sticky then it floats around wherever it wants to.
Because weight is expensive. The more weight you have to lift, the more fuel your rocket needs, and remember that a rocket also needs more fuel to lift the additional fuel, so even adding one pound to the weigh to a space ship can require several tens or hundreds of pounds of fuel to lift it. Water...
if its container is opened, yes. if not, no. just like on earth.
It is extremely expensive to take anything into space, so efficiency is crucial, not only in terms of the food itself, but also in terms of the equipment that would be needed to store and prepare the food. Dried food is efficient.
Assuming that by the time we have restaurants in space we will  already have built space cities, space stations having populations  on the order of 100,000; such restaurants will really be no  different than restaurants on earth.    These space cities will provide simulated gravity at normal...
In space itself which is a vacuum there can be no smell.    In a spaceship which will have a pressurized crew area it smells  exactly the same as it does here on earth.
 Neil Armstrong ate ham-salad sandwiches, rehydratable  beverages and 'fortified fruit strips' on the moon. He would eat  four meals on the moon's surface and his wastes are known to be in  the lunar module that was left behind. Due to this, he is  considered as one of the first man to eat on...
The best way is using hydroponic techniques i.e. growing plants in water with nutrients mixed in it.
Most likely not as space is a vacuum but there's a possibility it might undergo some weird mutation.
Possibly place it in a containment area of the space station where  the food stays fresh. This usually requires chemicals to some  extent. Freeze-drying food and rehydrating it before consumption  has also been an effective technique in keeping food edible for  long periods of time.
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...
The Saturn V rocket carrying Apollo 11 was the ship that took him to the moon in 1969.
  It comes in tubes in order to cope with lack of gravity.
In 1962 John Glenn ate applesauce packed in a toothpaste tube, and  sugar tablets in water to demonstrate that people could eat,  swallow, and digest food in a weightless environment.
Quartzite is sandstone (sedimentary rock) that has metamorphosed from heat and pressure.
You can buy it at Hot Topic at the lake wood mall but there is mostly just icecream and it costs about $4.
The shuttle has a large payload and it is reusable.
Essentially, it's freeze-dried food, with all the moisture sucked out of it. It's meant to be eaten by astronauts.
they ate things that were a small bag and that maybe did not taste good and it was like powder so they would kinda be eating powder that tasted like certain food
what should you pack to outer space and prepare
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.
Much of their food is in tubes that can be squeezed into their mouth to avoid it flying around, but there is still some that they can eat like normal, any of that type would be large enough not to get stuck in or damage equipment if lost. They put it in there mouth and eat it like anyone elce, but...
If you want my opinion then it would probably be bacon covered steak.
Typically, dehydration and irradiation. The causes of most food spoilage is the growth of bacteria in the moist environment of the food. Irradiation can kill all the bacteria, so as long as the package is sealed, no bacteria can grow there. And dehydration removes most of the water from the food so...
Maurice Krug invented space food.
Space food can spoil within two days and should be eaten before  that time. Space food are a variety freeze dried foods that need to  be rehydrated to be eaten.
