Snacks and Appetizers

Astronauts are no different than the rest of us. Given a chance, they will graze all day. With hundreds of astronauts and support personnel in the Astronaut Office at NASA’s Johnson Space Center, someone is always having a birthday or special event. Astronauts are among the world’s most efficient hunters of cake and other snack foods. That shouldn’t be surprising. An astronaut’s day is packed with meetings, training exercises, proficiency flights in training jets, mission simulations, medical tests, and maintaining physical fitness. There is rarely time to sit down and enjoy meals.
