'Bake in Space' Experiment Aims to Make Crumb-Free Bread on ISS

The scientists believe fresh-baked bread could significantly improve the lives of astronauts-as any carb-addict can readily understand.

"Baking where nobody baked before", the team behind the Bake In Space experiment quipped.

With Bake in Space - an experiment that aims to create crumb-free bread for astronauts - the German company hopes their unique recipe and oven will create a mess-free version of the goodness that everyone can enjoy without the fear of imminent death. Subsequently, they will be available for a variety of missions, which may involve research on the International Space Station, launching aboard spacecraft built by commercial companies, or departing for deep-space missions on NASA's new Orion spacecraft. Apparently, Young was trying to do Grissom a favor since the latter enjoyed corn beef sandwiches so much.

NASA scientists on the International Space Station are growing crystals to figure out how they can speed up drug development for humans.

North Korea releases jailed U.S. citizen Otto Warmbier
Secretary of State Tillerson said the State Department is continuing to discuss three other detained Americans with North Korea. When Rodman returned home, he faced heavy criticism after video surfaced of him singing "Happy Birthday" to leader Kim Jong-un.

Bake In Space is about more than the taste of the bread, but also how psychologically-filling the rolls can be.

Breadcrumbs can be problematic and even start fires in a micro-gravity environment.

. "As space tourism takes off and people spend more time in space we need to allow bread to be made from scratch", Sebastian Marcu, the founder of Bake In Space, told New Scientist.

To bake the space bread, most likely a low-energy convection oven will be used to bake a special dough that produces a crumb-free bread. Given the microgravity environment, the tiny particles can cause problems if they get into electrical systems and ventilation filters. The smell of fresh bread in itself is an important such factor. The team plans to control the entire baking process from the ground via video feeds from inside the oven - that way the astronauts won't have to worry about burning their loaves on top of their other duties. "It is a symbol of recreational time and procedure down on earth".
