      Well if the astronauts can then we all would be able to.

      Some of the food is the same as on Earth like wraps and things like that. A lot of the stuff needs water added to it and is more like a paste. I’m sure it tastes good.

      Although I once volunteered as a taster for a European Space Agency experiment where they were trying to make meals for long distance missions using algae, which is basically seaweed…it was disgusting, needed some work.
