A Taste of Space

(1 Votes)

We blasted off for an out-of-this-world taste of space by visiting the Kennedy Space Center in Florida for a five-part series focusing on space-themed food and food technology that came from NASA.

What To Do:


We went on location to Kennedy Space Center in Florida. It's a truly amazing place! We saw the Rocket Garden, where there's a Mercury Atlas rocket and capsule just like the ones used for John Glenn's 1962 space flight.

There are also replicas of the Gemini and Apollo capsules there. Now, if you think your kitchen at home is cramped, it's amazing to see the tiny space allotted for the astronauts and their food! Betcha none of us would ever complain again about packing a lunch after seeing all it takes to pack the food for a hungry space crew!

Did you know that much of NASA's research affects our everyday lives? When it comes to growing and packaging food, the technology they have developed for shelf-stable food and hydroponically grown produce (like what our astronauts grow in space) made its way to our markets from NASA.

Solar-powered refrigeration created for the space program is in the near future for us here on Earth – and there are so many other things we use today that were created for the space program!

As part of our space tour, why not try Blastoff Beans and our out-of-this-world dessert, Brownie Liftoff! They're sure to have you saying..."OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
