Thanks to studies and research conducted for the development and production of the Bonus Food for European Astronauts, Argotec Space Food Lab was able to identify interactions between nutrition and the human body and to develop a balanced diet and a safe packaging technology for astronauts in space, including Samantha Cristoforetti. Being able to provide the right food and nutrients is fundamental to guarantee a healthy and disease-free life for astronauts in zero-gravity.
Stefano Polato will talk about today’s challenge to rediscover tradition and renew it through technology, in order to produce innovative food able to provide all the necessary micronutrients.
Final remarks: Michael Brenner
Glover Professor of Applied Mathematics and Applied Physics; Harvard College Professor
Author of the course: Science & Cooking at Harvard University
The talk will be followed by a networking reception, brought to you by Pasta Beach.
