NASA wants space-food tasters for hypothetical Mars mission

02-22-2012  •  By Eileen Marable 

For every wannabe astronaut foodie, this is the opportunity for you. Scientists are looking to plan the menu and culinary routine of astronauts on a hypothetical Mars mission.


NASA is seeking volunteers to participate in a 120-day study run by Cornell/University of Hawaii that will simulate living and working conditions on a long voyage or prolonged stay in space. The study will focus on a vital part of everyday living - the process of preparing and eating food — but under the extraordinary conditions of space travel.

A key area of interest is testing the palatability of instant foods versus prepared foods, which astronauts would cobble together from shelf stable ingredients.
