ISS astronauts to eat food that’s out of this world
NASA has commissioned a Michelin-starred chef to send haute cuisine to the International Space Station, the Guardian reports.
Alain Ducasse, a celebrated gallic gastronomer, has been sending foods like duck breasts, lobsters and organic quinoa into space since 2006. The European Space Agency has commissioned his hi-tech food laboratory to create meals for a future Mars mission.
He’s teaming up with Brittany family firm HÃ©naff, which makes tinned meats and pates, to ensure the food retains flavor on its journey to the ISS.
The first set of meals will take off June of 2014.
