DR. CHARLES T. BOURLAND, shown in this photo inscribed to him, researched and designed food for astronauts from the Mercury program to the International Space Station. Here is a shown giving McAuliffe an edible orientation. After retiring from NASA in 2000, Bourland wrote The Astronaut's Cookbook and taught a course titled "Living, Working and Playing in Space" to hotel/restaurant management students at the University of Houston's Hilton School. Astronauts have never cooked in space. Everything they eat must be carried with them ready to eat.
