NASA funds 3D food printer, to combat hunger in space and on Earth | ExtremeTech

Many astronauts have PhDs, perhaps a military honor or two, maybe even a history in combat — but cooking? This is apparently a bridge too far, and while astronauts don’t have nearly as much free time in space as we might assume (probably a good thing, for mental health reasons), time is the least of the reasons NASA is looking to change our relationship with food. The space agency recently awarded a $125,000 grant to a project aimed at 3D printing food for astronauts, and while the space agency’s main concern is efficient food storage for long-haul space flights, creator Anjan Contractor hopes his technology could help people here on Earth get access to the volume and variety of food they need.
