Dining In Space

Sunday, June 30, 2019  2:00 pm

Eating healthy in space is more than basic nutrition. Few things have a larger psychological impact than an endless stream of unappetizing and unappealing food. We will talk about the challenges in preparing well-balanced meals for astronauts. As an added bonus, we will have a small “tasting buffet” for everyone to sample the cuisine eaten on the International Space Station. Bring your taste buds!

Speaker¬†Frank O’Brien has been volunteering at InfoAge since 2003, and is a Solar System Ambassador for Nasa’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He is the author of a very successful book on the Apollo Guidance Computer, and gives lectures on all aspects of spaceflight.
