Eat Well as a Japanese Astronaut

September 17, 2014

To “enrich the variety of Japanese space food,”  the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency has selected 33 Japanese dishes, including "wagyu beef keema curry, miso soup and hijiki seaweed salad, for development as future astronaut food,” according to a piece in The Wall Street Journal/Japan. Also to be added to the menu are “soy sauce, mocha rice cake, and Japanese spiny lobster in chili sauce.”
