Behind the Scenes: Space Food and Space Exercise

By Keith Kocinski 10.07.2015 blog
Space Food has evolved over the past five decades from something that looks like toothpaste to what you currently find in your grocery store. Here is some behind the scenes footage of space food from the past, present — and a look toward the future of space food on a Mars mission.


Staying fit in space is one of the most important tasks for an astronaut! There is zero gravity in space, meaning your body doesn’t have to work against anything. You can lose muscle strength and mass, and your bones can lose 2 percent of their density per month, meaning they are easier to break. I had the opportunity to do a grueling space workout at the Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas. I had trouble walking after this one.
