Space Station crew members are being fed on Soyuz capsules to ensure they are hydrated, a first in space.
That’s why they’re being fed a different type of food in their new quarters, according to the company that operates the station.
The Food & Beverage Center at the Kennedy Space Center is using a new meal plan that incorporates some of the latest technology.
It’s the same one that has been used on Space Station Expedition 4 and Expedition 5 crews.
It was designed for astronauts in their first month on the space station, and it’s the first time it’s been tested with people.
It also comes in handy when food delivery is delayed, as it will ensure astronauts are fed during the transition period between the station’s first and second seasons.
