The objective of Bake in Space is to make fresh bread – in this case, common German rolls – aboard the International Space Station (ISS). To that end, the project is building a space-ready oven that will be capable of baking a dough mixture designed for this unique weightless environment. The idea is to use this endeavour as a stepping-stone to providing fresh food that will benefit the wellbeing and general quality of life of those living and working in space. Bake in Space is leveraging the business opportunities afforded by the commercialisation of the ISS and is contributing directly to NASA and ESA’s goals for the long-term exploration efforts of humankind.
