In space for the first time made cookies. An unusual experiment staged on the international space station.

However, the crew did not try dessert. Because he was sent to Earth to study.
At NASA and in the future I plan to experiment with cooking in microgravity. It could help in the colonization of the moon or Mars. Meanwhile, astronauts in the rocket only heat up already prepared for them on the Earth food, just spreading the concentrates of hot water.
People planning to travel in space for many months. It could be six months, 12 or even 18 to get for example to Mars. It’s not very cool to eat food, squeezing it from tubes,
