Ever since humans began to explore space, the astronauts had no other choice but to eat from a tube.

A German company named "Bake in Space" set out on a daring experiment to help astronauts do just that, bake fresh bread while up in space.

A team of researchers wants to "bake were nobody baked before".

With Bake in Space - an experiment that aims to create crumb-free bread for astronauts - the German company hopes their unique recipe and oven will create a mess-free version of the goodness that everyone can enjoy without the fear of imminent death. Late a year ago, astronauts ate the first veggies grown on the International Space Station. "Bake In Space seeks to address the scientific and technical challenges relating to the production of fresh bread in space".

"As space tourism takes off and people spend more time in space, we need to allow bread to be made from scratch", Sebastian Marcu, CEO and founder of Bake In Space, told New Scientist. In 2015, Samantha Cristoforetti, an Italian astronaut, sipped the first coffee brewed in space using a brand new micro-gravity espresso machine. The trainees who will become future astronauts are also called as "ascans", and now there are 12 of them, who will become the sole for next space missions. This is composed as to rise into a tasty but crumb-free bread. Crumbs from bread can damage onboard equipment or get into the eyes of astronauts as they float everywhere in the microgravity. "According to our baking experts, the process would also make bread rolls more fluffy".

"Besides [being] a source for nutrition, the smell of fresh bread evokes memories of general happiness and is an important psychological factor", the project website states. The entire baking process will be controlled from the ground via video feeds, so astronauts won't be physically involved in the process and they do not need to be anxious about the end result. "It is a symbol of recreational time and procedure down on earth".
