Assuming that you care about how food in space started out, read this article. First, there was a tube, then there was food made into a paste. Whola! You have space food in a tube. This space menu was originally bland (imagine that) and odorless (food aromas don’t make it to the nose because of weightlessness). Bite-sized cubes, freeze-dried powders and semi-liquids in aluminum tubes had ever since topped the menu, but times have changed and astronauts had found ways on how to add flavor to food.
Not only had they figured out how to add flavor, but they also made it possible to include utensils on their trays, which are glued with magnets to keep food and forks floating away in space. Man, are you eating or playing? IKR! Blame gravity!
Well, still quite #$%^& inventive, right? Now, you know how space food came to be. Featured Image Source: blog.friendseat.com
