The Great British Space Dinner
In December 2015, British astronaut Tim Peake will arrive on the International Space Station (ISS). During Tim’s stay on the station, where he will be undertaking important scientific work, he will need to eat, drink and stay healthy. Healthy eating and drinking is crucial for astronaut’s health due to limited availability and extreme environment of space. Microgravity creates various challenges, such as loss of bone and muscle. To reduce this loss, astronauts consume a healthy, varied diet and exercise at least for two hours per day.
