Feeding Our Future - Nutrition on Earth and in Space

Feeding our Future – Nutrition on Earth and in Space, from ESA, examines food as a vital part of life on Earth and in space. It shows why we need food in the first place and what it represents in our culture and daily living.

The video illustrates how our bodies process food as a source of energy and building materials. It looks at the importance of good nutrition for a healthy life and what can happen without it, whether here on Earth or in space. The programme also looks at research for preserving and growing food for long flights, as well as valuable technology for future food supplies on Earth, where climate change and population growth are global challenges. New techniques developed for space missions can help to feed hungry people on our planet.
