Last month, we saw how the folks aboard the International Space Station use the bathroom — not surprisingly, it’s an ungraceful process involving tubes with tremendous sucking abilities. Today, we learn how astronauts whip up their favorite meals. Hint: It’s not easy, but man, is it a beautiful thing to watch come together.
Here, we watch as Samantha Cristoforetti’s demonstrates the art of making a taco while in space. Her choice of ingredients — mackerel, quinoa salad!? — is odd and not exactly enticing, but the way the warm tortilla just floats in the air as she’s piecing the whole thing together is neat.
