Who said astronauts have to nourish themselves with food in the form of pills? Argotec, the only European company authorized to produce food for astronauts by the European Space Agency has chosen four Slow Food Presidia legumes based on their nutritional properties, which will be eaten by Samantha Cristoforetti, the first Italian woman to spend six months on the International Space Station. A healthy diet is just as essential for someone who lives in extreme conditions as it is in our daily lives.
