NASA space food

This gallery of freeze dried and preserved morsels spans more than 50 years of NASA space food, from the Gemini missions to the International Space Station. “Flight food systems” are the responsibility of NASA’s Space Food Systems Laboratory. Its mission:

…to provide high-quality flight food systems that are convenient, compatible with each crew member’s physiological and psychological requirements, meet spacecraft stowage and galley interface requirements, and are easy to prepare and eat in the weightlessness of space.

Bon appetit!
