What's on the Menu? Food and Culture on the Space Station

In honor of Asian American and Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Heritage Month, learn about the intersection of food and culture in space from NASA astronaut Sunita "Suni" Williams, whose father immigrated to the U.S. from India, and International Space Station (ISS) food scientist/system manager Xulei Wu, a first-generation Asian American born in China. Hear their stories about cultural representation in space, the importance of food in Indian and Chinese cultures, and the inclusive standard menu aboard the ISS. What's one dish you would like to see aboard? Drop your suggestion in the comments below! Producer/Editor: Lacey Young Art Director: Mark Hailey Music: Universal Production Music Credit: NASA
