Astronauts have to juggle many chores together in space, but thankfully, NASA has sent something to help them out – an Astrobee. Astrobee is NASA’s free-flying robotic system that helps astronauts with routine tasks like taking inventory, documenting experiments with their built-in camera, and working together with astronauts to move cargo. They can work autonomously or via remote control by astronauts, flight controllers, and researchers on the ground. The NASA Astrobee can also carry out experiments in microgravity and play a...

Even a morsel of food will float off and drift around the space vessel. Drinks, they too will float out and hang in the air.

From gloopy foods packaged in tubes in the 60s, to freeze dried food to hot meals that require hot water to be mixed to become moist, nutrition researchers at...
