New Bread Formulation Will Benefit Astronauts, Space Tourists

June 13, 2017: 12:00 AM EST
The forces of gravity are important to bread – especially in outer space. Back in 1965 astronauts on a space mission found that without gravity, a sneaked-on corned beef sandwich crumbled into bits and pieces. NASA got mad because the free-floating crumbs endangered astronauts’ health as well as sensitive electronic gear. NASA banned bread in space, though tortillas are okay. But those days may soon be over, because a German company, Bake In Space, is developing a zero-gravity bread mixture that will bake at low pressure and heat. The fluffy rolls won’t produce “astronaut-killing crumbs.” The innovation would not only benefit astronauts, but also the outer space tourists of the future.
