International Space Station’s Astronauts To Bake Cookies In Orbit

On the International Space Station, astronauts have to forgo a lot of creature comforts, including the fresh-baked cookies. Customers of DoubleTree by Hilton hotel are offered lots of creature comforts. It includes fresh-baked chocolate chip cookies, which are complimentary at the time of their check-in.

While astronauts from Space Station won’t be offered turn down service or fresh towels by Hilton, they are planning to try their hand at baking. And reportedly, DoubleTree cookies are supposed to be the foremost experiment they are starting with. In an association with Zero-G Kitchen, a space-age oven developer, and NanoRacks, which is lab equipment maker for Space Station, DoubleTree is supposed to make aerospace record later this year. Zero-G Kitchen is known for sending a model zero gravity oven to the space station.

On a similar note, astronauts from the U.S. & Canada and a Russian cosmonaut came into the news as they have arrived back to Earth. Reportedly, they spent over 200 Days aboard the International Space Station. Oleg Kononenko from Roscosmos, a Russian space agency, Anne McClain from NASA, and astronaut David Saint-Jacques from the Canadian Space Agency were landed this week on board Russia’s spacecraft named Soyuz MS-11. This spacecraft was slowed by braking thrusters and lowered by parachute. Then, finally, the capsule reached down southeast of the Dzhezkazgan.

With this landing, the crew members’ 204-day mission came to an end. In this mission, McClain, Kononenko, and Saint-Jacques worked on the space station’s 58th and 59th mission crews. All three crew members arrived at the orbiting laboratory on Dec. 3, 2018. About a week before coming home McClain shared his experience on Twitter and said, “It takes approximately 3.5 Hours between undocking from the space station to land in Kazakhstan.”
