Transcript of Space Food

Space Food By: Quinn Van Moorlehem The biggest differences between space food and regular food are in the packaging and design. Space food must be carefully contained so it doesn't float around in the low-gravity (microgravity) environment. Even something as simple as a few crumbs can become deadly in low gravity. They can lodge into important machinery, vents, etc. and can create a serious choking hazard for the crew. Today most space food looks a lot like food here on the ground. Before, the only food was a tastless paste that would be despensed out of a toothpaste like tube. But now as technology has changed, we have created a much more beneficial way to eat food in space. Some of the more current space food on the menu include: Beef stroganoff
Crispy rice cereal
Chicken stew
Scrambled eggs
Granola bars
Macaroni and cheese
Chocolate pudding Enriched Baby Food Spin off: A microalgae-based, vegetable-like oil called "Formulaid" developed from NASA-sponsored research on long duration space travel, contains two essential fatty acids found in human milk but not in most baby formulas. It is believed to be important for infants' mental and visual development. Advantages and disadvantages: Other than the food tasting
worse than regular food, the main disadvantage is that space food
is very expensive. I think that our space programme should be funded internationally because everyone should be able to learn about space and how we can explore it.
