'Space Ramen' Used Shape-Memory Technique

8, 01. 2005

The ramen noodles that Japanese astronaut Soichi Noguchi was seen eating in the US Space Shuttle that returned to earth on August 9 were made by Nissin Food Products of Japan. The noodles were cut into chunks and the soup was treated with thickener to stop them floating away in the weightless environment of the spacecraft. Protein was used on top to ensure the meal kept its form through shape-memory.
