Remember when you were a kid, and you wanted to be an astronaut, so you could blast into space like Han Solo, outracing enemy starships, investigating alien worlds, and boldly going where no man has gone before?
Surprise, dummy, it’s not really like that.
That being said, space exploration isn’t completely devoid of adventure. For example, here’s Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, showing you how to make a peanut butter and honey sandwich on a tortilla… IN SPACE!!! (video after the jump)
If you’re interested in more foods that Canadians eat in space, the good folks at the Canadian Space Agency have provided a full menu, including such delicacies as candied wild smoked salmon, les canardises duck rillettes, and the ever popular SPACE POUTINE.
OK, I made up space poutine, but give them a little time. They’ll come up with it eventually.
They are rocket scientists after all.
