NASA video celebrates AANHPI Heritage Month with food and culture in space #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth #APAHM #AAPIHM
Learn more about how NASA astronauts eat on the ISS, via Space
May is Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, and the cultural celebration isn’t restricted to life here on Earth — it’s also marked high above the planet, on the International Space Station (ISS).
In a newly released video titled “What’s on the Menu? Food and Culture on the Space Station,” NASA provides an exploration of diverse food and culture aboard the ISS, showing how astronauts share stories and memories centered around daily mealtimes.
Bring your appetite and join NASA astronaut Sunita “Suni” Williams, whose father was born in India before coming to America, and International Space Station Food Scientist and System Manager Xulei Wu, a first-generation Asian American originally from China, who give us a tour of the ISS kitchen and tell us what’s cooking in space.
