Let’s talk about space food. In the early days of space exploration, food was mostly squeezed out of tubes, and brought up in dehydrated packets. But today, we can have quite a variety of food. There’s all sorts of things that we’d normally consume on earth that we have here on space, we just need some minor adaptations.
In the case of sandwiches, we had to substitute for bread, so, we decided to use tortillas, but why? Mostly, it’s because bread of course makes crumbs, when you eat them on earth, the crumbs fall down to the ground, but here crumbs are just going to float away. On the other hand, the tortillas that we use are heat-treated and specially packaged in an oxygen-free environment to prevent mold from growing, there are packages like this.
And thanks to that process, a tortilla like this can be good for 18 months. So what we’re going to do is, we’re going to open up our tortilla, we’re going to get our peanut butter, squirt it on to the tortilla, get our honey, squirt that on there, and we will have peanut butter honey sandwich in space.
Open up the tortilla and voila, a weightless tortilla. Okay, we got one tortilla, whoa, got away. Take my peanut butter, open it up, can’t rip it. Fortunately we have space scissors; they’re attached by a tether, they don’t go floating up. Take the scissors, cut open the peanut butter pouch, peanut butter is open, squeeze it on to the tortilla, carefully, and now a little honey.

Hey, I noticed something cool about the honey, instead of the bubbles sitting up at the top, because there is no gravity to make it float up. The bubble is floating in the middle. Okay, all closed up, and we envelope peanut butter and honey is ready to eat. Not too bad.
Last piece of my sandwich, it’s been pretty delicious, and my hands are all sticky, got to clean up, we don’t have a sink, we don’t have running water, you got to wash yourself up some other way, disinfectant wipes.
All cleaned up, nice and hygienic on the Space Station, this goes in the trash, lunch is over, delicious.
