Space Food

Space foods are food products made for consumption by astronauts in outer space.
nowone really knows sorry but face now one will know
by drying out real food (such as ice-cream, strawberries, etc.) bydeep freezing them, so the astronauts can take nutritional food into space, without taking excess liquids and weight.
In 1962 John Glenn ate applesauce packed in a tube, and sugartablets in water to demonstrate that people could eat, swallow, anddigest food in a weightless environment.
You bring it with you.
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 found...
It isn't. Most early space foods were, but modern space food oftenhas the same texture as the equivalent foods you eat everyday.
anything freeze dried
maurice krug invented space food in 1956
First they freeze dry it, and then they vacuum seal it in a special bag.
Maurice Krug
Basically, you open the packet and eat it.
This is a trick question. There are 0 (zero) legs on one worm, so ten worms would also have 0 legs.
Food is taken into space in freeze-dried packets. But i am not sure if they add water or not. . Yes, water must be added. However certain foods like the freeze-dried icecream are fine without adding water.
They make their own oxygen by mixing nitrogen with carbon dioxide.
the food is freeze dried at extreme temperatures and then sealed into a special foil packet NASA or other space agencies then supply the missions with enough food to last the trip and extra if you get stranded. the food when you eat it tastes similar to those that you would eat on earth it is...
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.
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 contractorsthat make it to NASA specifications (like everything else NASAuses). Freeze dried foods are made by freezing the food, then placing itin a vacuum chamber. The vacuum causes the frozen water in the foodto sublime (change directly from...
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 watermust be added before they can be eaten. Some types of spacefood 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 fuelcells that are used to generate electricity to power the spacecraftelectronics produce plenty of water as a waste product. This wateris 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.
Space helmet with specially designed, air-tite glass, a space suit made of rubber, metal, and plastic, an oxygen tank, tubes for oxygen tank, space boots, specially designed with seals at the top, letting in no air whatsoever.
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 explainedby matter heating up just before falling into a black hole. We havealso found cases of stars orbiting unseen objects that have a veryhigh mass but are unseen and seem quite small. By our currentunderstanding only a black hole could...
The purpose and application of space food are to keep astronautshealthy and at peak physical performance. This is accomplished through the processof having the astronauts eat the food that theyhave brought to orbit with them. In perfect accordance with this system, no space food is launched...
Space food is dehydrated in order to greatly reduce the weight of the food because space and weight are prime real estate on a space shuttle.
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 isnot 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.
Space food was invented during the early 1960s which weresemi-liquid and could only be eaten by sucking through a straw. By1965, the food was more palatable with wider variety such as turkeybite and butterscotch pudding.
Assuming that by the time we have restaurants in space we willalready have built space cities, space stations having populationson the order of 100,000; such restaurants will really be nodifferent than restaurants on earth. These space cities will provide simulated gravity at normalearth levels ...
In space itself which is a vacuum there can be no smell. In a spaceship which will have a pressurized crew area it smellsexactly the same as it does here on earth.
Neil Armstrong ate ham-salad sandwiches, rehydratablebeverages and 'fortified fruit strips' on the moon. He would eatfour meals on the moon's surface and his wastes are known to be inthe lunar module that was left behind. Due to this, he isconsidered as one of the first man to eat on the moon. .
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.
becuz people are gross and would like die without it you no lol
It was called Apollo 11, but the Com and module was called Columbia and the Lunar module was called The Eagle.
That is a matter of ones own opinion. Most astronauts would think that it is good, because they are used to eating it. However, other people's opinions will vary.
Possibly place it in a containment area of the space station wherethe food stays fresh. This usually requires chemicals to someextent. Freeze-drying food and rehydrating it before consumptionhas also been an effective technique in keeping food edible forlong periods of time.
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 iseaten is not taken into orbit, it is available free as the wasteproduct of the fuel cells that generate electricity for...
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...
They are looking for exrtra-terrestrial, how far space can really go, looking for more information about the planets, UFO's and loads more of things.
The Saturn V rocket carrying Apollo 11 was the ship that took him to the moon in 1969.
food, everything they will need to eat for the entire durationof the mission. there is no currently available way to grow food inspace and if there were it would be too slow. . water, none. it is available in space as the waste product ofthe fuel cells that generate electricity for the spacecraft....
At the gift shop in the National Space Center in Leicester England you can get a bag of space ice cream, or space strawberrys for £1.50 a bag. Every space center is different and concessions charge various prices. Actual space food sent up in the shuttle is very expensive since research and...
Died on February 1, 2003 over the southern United States when Space Shuttle Columbia and the crew perished during entry, 16 minutes prior to scheduled landing.
Well it depends because I went to this space camp and we made rockets and stuff like that and we had space ice cream and it was all dry it was not cold and it tasted horrible. You can buy them somewhere but I don't no the place.
It comes in tubes in order to cope with lack of gravity.
In 1962 John Glenn ate applesauce packed in a toothpaste tube, andsugar tablets in water to demonstrate that people could eat,swallow, and digest food in a weightless environment.
you need to change your helmet and when you take it off you can not breathe.
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.
