ELON Musk’s SpaceX rocket will send some delicious meals to the International Space Station, courtesy of a celebrity chef.
Famous Spanish chef José Andrés works with Axiom Space, which organizes private space flights for very wealthy tourists.
According to Food & Wine, Space’s menu consists primarily of Spanish dishes, including paella.
The food will be sent to the ISS at the same time as a private flight this spring.
The first fully private manned mission to the ISS should take place sometime next month.
Four lucky people make up the private crew that will spend eight days on the ISS.
Nasa veteran Michael López-Alegría will be the commander of the upcoming launch.
He is also a friend of Andrés.
Andrés told Food & Wine: “Before I dreamed of feeling people in a room, I dreamed of feeding people underwater, like Jules Verne.
“I think feeding people is the ultimate challenge for me, especially on the fringes of the known world.”
Astronauts will eat the planned paella together as if it were a “family meal.”
Although the food will be a treat, Nasa makes sure its astronauts always have plenty to eat on the ISS.
This includes desserts and condiments like ketchup and mustard.
Andrés told Food & Wine: “The difficulty is that NASA has done this very well over the years.
“You did a lot of washing up. And the question was, can we come up with something different, something new? Can we push the envelope a bit more?”
