Every kid wants to be an astronaut at some point. The idea of floating around a spaceship while exploring the universe at the speed of light (sigh, if only) is a thrilling thought I used to spend hours dreaming about back in grade school. Of course, all that’s peaches and gravy — yes, peaches and gravy damnit — until you find out what astronauts actually have to eat in space.
Basically, their diet consists of pulverized protein, sugar and vitamins resembling something not too unlike sad baby food. Hence, the “chocolate cake” and “coffee” in the video below that was taken at the International Space Station. All I can say is, Chris Hadfield, you are one brave, brave soul.
