How Astronauts Eat Cheeseburgers in Space


Back in 1985, Mexican astronaut Rodolfo Neri Vela brought some tortillas in space aboard the space shuttle Discovery, and ever since then, NASA astronauts have been using them to “contain” their food while in zero gravity.

Pictured above and below, you can see astronaut Terry W. Virts eating a cheeseburger composed of tortilla, a broken up beed patty, cheese paste, tomato paste, and some Russian mustard. OM NOM NOM NOM.
