What do astronauts eat?

what do astronauts eatToday, a wide variety of menu items are available for astronauts as space food. They can choose from meals including beef stroganoff, chicken teriyaki, and turkey tetrazzini. Typically, an astronaut will have the chance to decide his own space food meals from a menu list well in advance of the shuttle launch.
Space food is provided in disposable containers that can be attached to the astronaut's meal tray, which is strapped to his lap, so that the containers do not float freely through space. The astronaut must consume each part of the meal separately, not starting on another course until the previous one is finished. Once the space food has been eaten, the meal packaging must be disposed of, and is put into a trash compactor to eliminate waste.



Astronauts description:

An astronaut or cosmonaut is a person trained by a human spaceflight program to command, pilot, or serve as a crew member of a spacecraft. While generally reserved for professional space travelers, the term is sometimes applied to anyone who travels into space, including scientists, politicians, journalists, and tourists.
