Space & Weather: Cosmos Cuisine

What do astronauts eat when they are out in space serving on a mission?? Well, like anyone else, they need to eat – but since they can’t exactly pull into the nearest drive-thru on the way to Mars and there aren’t grocery stores floating in space, astronauts have to be very intentional about the kinds of food they bring with them on their missions. Today our campers took on a dual role: they were both astronauts in training and & food scientists! They evaluated food samples to determine how suitable certain foods are for going into space!!

Ask your camper:  Do you prefer eating fresh fruits or dehydrated fruit?
