Culinary Quest: Zvyozdny Gorodok (Star City)

In a new series the journalist Martyn Andrews visits a training centre for the Russian cosmonauts. Martyn learns how to cook cosmic food and interviews different cosmonauts to find out their food preferences. An interesting fact: it costs around 15 thousand dollars to put 1 kilo of space food to the orbit that’s why space people have a lot of vacuum dried products such as soups, porridge stew or buckwheat. The products are packed in special pockets. The very important thing is not to let any food go out of the pocket. In weightlessness it could be dangerous to have some crumbs and drops flying all over the cabin!
