  • Astronaut John W. Young - "Factors Affecting Food Development for Space Flight" by John Young
    were also used Although he did not experience any real hunger he consumed a tube of peaches and one of beef and vegetables Therefore Mercury experiments showed that as long as man can get the food into his mouth he can eat normally With an eye to future flights we wanted to experiment with freeze dehydrated food As you know freeze drying removes more than 95 of the water in foods This food re hydrated provided a more solid type diet and added variety to the space flight menu I hasten to add here that variety is not the reason for going to freeze dried food If we used the bite size and tube filled foods of Mercury it would require an approximate weight of 3 6 lb man day and 300 cubic inches stowage space to provide 2500 cal man day diet The same diet using freeze dried foods we hope to result in a food weight of 1 3 lb man day and a stowage volume of 100 cu in man day Roughly speaking on a two week Apollo lunar mission we will save nearly 100 lbs of weight and 8 400 cu in of stowage space with freeze dried food To put it bluntly we don t have 8 400 extra cu in of stowage space inside the Apollo spacecraft Since it will take roughly 800 to 1000 lbs of fuel and boosters to carry one pound of anything to the moon and back weight saving in the food area is vital Cooper reported on his flight in the first evaluation in space of freeze dried food that difficulties with food containers and water nozzles during his flight prevented him from properly reconstituting the food Due to these problems he only consumed one third package of beef pot roast during a 34 hour flight To correct these difficulties in Gemini and Apollo the dehydrated food will be packaged in specially devised zero g containers Water for food re constitution which incidentally is produced by the fuel cells combining hydrogen and oxygen to make electricity with water as a by product vital though it is will be delivered to the spacecraft cockpit through specially designed probe nozzles Food will be re hydrated by inserting the special probe into a sealed valve and applying the proper amount of water Probe removal will seal a check valve to prevent leakage The hydration process is accomplished by squeezing the package from 3 to 5 minutes A feeding seal in the food container neck is broken and the food container neck inserted into the mouth and the food package is squeezed to force food into the mouth The feeding seal is resecured leakproof wise by clamping it shut A germicide in tablet form will be squeezed in the food package prior to its stowage in the waste container to prevent putrefaction This package is designed to insure satisfactory re hydration and prevent leakage All package openings are designed for ready operation and
