What do astronauts eat in space?

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 astronauts add water to beverages through a special tube before drinking. Astronauts attach their individual food containers to a food tray with fabric fasteners. The tray itself connects either to the wall or to the astronauts' laps. Astronauts open the food packages with scissors and eat with a knife, fork and spoon. Astronauts don't use bread as the crumbs may float around. Inhaling these crumbs is dangerous. They also avoid hot foods, as it may burn them if it floats onto them.

Astronauts ate a variety of foods in space. Some of their foods were freeze dried fruits, and vegetables. They also had meals that were freeze dried so they could just add water and eat them.
They eat food like pizza, chicken and nuts BUT the food they eat is powered so it would be powered nuts, powered chicken and powered pizza
United States astronauts eat vacuum - sealed food packages that are significantly modified from their state on Earth to an in-space state (the food has the consistency of peanut butter.) Everything and anything is converted to this space form and fed to the astronauts during their mission via pre - packaged containers of the food.

Astronauts eat nuts or peanuts when up in space. They also eat space food.
Freeze dried food that is packaged before takeoff.

Tang, don't forget the Tang.
Angelfood cake and Starburst. These represent two of the major food groups, anyway. I'm sure they eat other things too, like Milky Way and Mars Bars.
Dehydrated, pureed food that tastes like yogurt. A number of freeze-dried foods can be rehydrated to taste like the original, more or less.
Freeze-dried MRE's (Meals Ready- to- Eat). They are the same that soldiers use.

the dry kind...
In a space station astronauts eat many things like chicken, steak, pork, fruits, veggies. When in a space station trying to reduce the amount of crumbs a piece of food makes is key. For example if you where to eat bread in space the crumbs would float in the air (due to no gravity) and the crumbs could possibly get into air filters and other equpiment used by the astronauts so reducing the amount of crumbs you make is deffinetly important

What are the advantages of manned space shuttles?

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 be excessive.

However, it does have one more effect; a political effect that is basically saying "I'm better than you". This only applies in milestones (such as the eventual first person to mars, then the asteroid belt, then the moons of Jupiter, and so on).

Food Spoilage
Space Food

What methods are used to prevent space food from spoiling?

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 that it takes up less space and weight, and stays edible for longer times.

Root Beer

Can you drink root beer on the moon?

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 we know of.

Is it easier or harder to eat in space?

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.
