Skylab was a manned space station launched into Earth orbit by the United States in May 1973. To prepare meals, the Skylab crew placed desired food packages into the food warmer tray. This was the first device capable of heating foods (by means of conduction) during space flight. Foods consisted of products such as ham, chili, mashed potatoes, ice cream, steak, and asparagus.
