Fresh Baked Bread In Space

What’s more dangerous in space then a vicious alien, it bread! Not joking. Some 50 years ago, two astronauts sneaked a corned beef sandwich onboard NASA’s 1965 Gemini 3, and without gravity, the bread crumbs went wild. They could have harmed the astronauts—getting into their eyes, for example—or caused a crash by ruining the electrical panels or starting a fire. And bread has been banned from spacecraft ever since. Several scientists, working under the project name Baked In Space, are trying to change that. The team is determined to develop a crumb-less bread that astronauts can not only eat in space, but bake there, too. The scientists believe fresh-baked bread could significantly improve the lives of astronauts, besides a source for nutrition, the smell of fresh bread would evoke memories of happiness and Earth. So, they’re creating a German bread roll that can be baked and enjoyed—danger-free—on the International Space Station along with a special oven in time for an April 2018 mission…..Ed
