Space Food, Spaghetti and Meat Sauce, Apollo 11 (White)

This package contains freeze-dried spaghetti with meatsauce, and was flown on the Apollo 11 mission in July, 1969. As it was not consumed during the flight, it was returned to earth, and transferred to the national Air and Space Museum.

Each Apollo crew member was provided with three meals per day which provided approximately 2,800 calories per day. The food was freeze-dried and was easily reconstituted by the astronaut with a water probe which dispensed one half ounce of hot or cold water as required, each time the trigger button was pressed.

Transferred from NASA - Johnson Space Center in 1986
