Astronaut Space Ice-Cream
- Introducing our ‘authentic feel & taste’ of space food
These authentic all-American astro-snacks are a technological marvel in their own right. They don’t look like real food, yet taste like real food. How can this be? Freeze drying is the process that has been applied to astronaut food since the early days when eating the right stuff was as important as having it.
It’s a fiendishly complex process that can be summarised thus:
- The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystallizes.
- The air pressure is lowered, forcing air out of the chamber.
- Next heat is applied, vaporizing the ice.
- Finally, a freezing coil traps the vaporized water.
- This process continues for hours, resulting, over time in a perfect freeze-dried ice cream slice.
So now you know.
All of the goodness. All of the flavour. Yet none of the water content.
- This product is known to sometimes break or crumble as it is freeze dried and very delicate
- Space Treats developed for the early Apollo Space Missions – to eat straight from the packet
- Neapolitan Ice Cream Sandwich: Strawberry, Chocolate, and Vanilla slice between two biscuit wafers
- Three year shelf life

4.6 Billion Year Old Shooting Stars
Our hugely popular real shooting stars!
Go out on a clear night and you might just see a shooting star, also known as a meteor. These tiny fragments of rock and dust burn up in the night sky with beautiful short-lived glow.
Now imagine if one of those space rocks landed on Earth!
Then we would call it a meteorite instead of meteor
Our fragments have been carefully selected, and dated to an astronishing 4.6 billion years old, and are originally from the Campo Del Ceilo crater in Argentina.
