Astronauts Will Become Space Bakers

Since trips to Mars aren’t that far away, one little detail has to be ironed out: how good is baking is space?

Astronauts spend months in space in the name of science. Now science wants to give them a better sandwich. A German team is behind "Bake in space," an effort to find a way to bake tasty rolls in microgravity. Right now, astronauts use tortillas for their sandwiches because regular bread tends to crumble, and crumbs have the potential to wreak havoc on multi-million dollar space station systems.

The problem is that bread that doesn't produce crumbs doesn't tend to taste very good. The effort to bake space bread will take the challenge to the International space Station during an upcoming mission.Source: Digital Trends
