NASA astronaut talks about why food in space is different

Now that the world’s richest men are setting forth on a journey to space, it might be helpful to revisit former NASA astronaut Mike Massimino’s account of why food is different in space.

According to Massimino, food in space is unlike the food prepared on Earth. In the space lab, he said food prepared by cooks are rated by astronauts like himself. They also have ready to eat thermal stabilized meals similar to the food served by the military.

Because of the lack of gravity, eating is pretty tricky in space because you can’t season them the way you want in a regular meal. Still, there are liquid options for salt and other condiments to add to the flavor.

Massimino also discussed how they have to be practical for space food so items like bread which take up a lot of room is usually replaced with options like tortilla. This may not be the case for chartered space flights that cost millions.
