A Spanish astronaut asks what food is in that bag and goes to orbit: Some people got it right

Spanish astronaut Pablo Alvarez It’s sparked dozens of reactions by uploading a photo to Twitter and asking: “What do you think is the food in this bag?”

Many users gave answers, but many were not correct. Of course, the astronaut is responding to his many followers. For example, one replied: “It’s not a potato omelette, but I hope if they send a potato omelette it will be with onions.”

Another user asked “how are the caloric requirements there”: “I think the body will expend very little by getting rid of a lot of muscle work.” And Alvarez clarified the issue: “It costs very little, but every day we have to do about two hours of exercise to counteract the effects of the lack of gravity. An approximate formula would be: basal metabolism * 1.4” .

Another tweeter pointed out that what is written in Russian on the bag is that it should be “heated with 100 ml of hot water for 5 to 10 minutes”: “Same thing in English above, but cut off. A Question.. do you get Russian classes as part of your preparation as an astronaut?”.

“Yeah, we have to learn the basics at least. Not as much as in the Soyuz days,” clarified the astronaut, who revealed the question: “Well, for those of you who say scrambled eggs, congratulations! You ” we set.”

Miguel Ángel Lurueña, PhD in Food Science and Technology, ties the thread of it all: “As you can see, the astronauts continue to eat food. They can be fed (rather, nourished) with pills, But he is more than just eating food”.
