Space Food<br />Osamah H, Khalifa A, Omer A, Oscar R, Khalid Z, Salah M<br />
Intro<br />Going into Space for the first time must have been a glamorous trip, but wait…..<br />HOW DID THEY SURVIVE WITHOUT FOOD?<br />They had food, but simple and bland food. Since there was no gravity, food would float around, make a mess, and dangerous items could hurt them.<br />
How<br />Eating in Space had a simple concept to keep them energized, safe, and healthy. <br />Some of those foods consisted of dried foods and foods taken out of tubes that had great resemblance to tooth paste dispensers.<br />They also had cooked foods, which could be easily re heated for consuming.<br />
Types<br />Since Space travel has now worn in to us, many go in hopes of new data of new planets.<br />There are Russian types of foods, such as soups in a tube.<br />The general foods consist of Biscuits, Vitamins, and Nuts. Basically anything that can be easily stored and consumed without making a mess.<br />
Testing<br />To be taken into Space, the food needs to pass three tests:<br />Lightness: must be light and easy to pack<br />Healthiness: must be healthy<br />Easiness: must be easy to eat, and dispose of<br />
Space food sticks<br />Space food sticks were developed around the 1970’s, coming in a variety of flavors. They were made to be quick easy snacks. Such as:<br />Chocolate<br />Caramel<br />Peanut Butter<br />
Evolution<br />Eating in space has changed a lot, starting with small candy bars and food sticks, but these days, the astronaut’s meal is more or less ordinary.<br />In 2008, bagels were taken to Space, which definitely was an initiative of evolution. Now, they are testing to see if Burgers can be taken into space. This is all thanks to the Inventors, who dreamed, and worked hard to achieve what was once thought as impossible.<br />
