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.
