NASA’s Nutritional Biochemistry Laboratory

It is the primary responsibility of NASA’s Nutritional Biochemistry Laboratory to understand the nutritional requirements of astronauts on extended-duration flights to the International Space Station, and on future exploration missions. In this book, we provide an overview of space programs from the earliest human space flight through the current gem that is the International Space Station. The book also covers the role of nutrition in the space program, describes how space nutrition research is conducted, and highlights much of the research that has been completed or is ongoing at NASA. Intended for Grades 5-8.
