Caption: Astronaut Michael Baker chases a sandwich on the flight deck of Shuttle Atlantis. This informal photograph was taken during Mission STS-43 of 2-11 August 1991. Food for Shuttle crews has changed considerably since the original pureed 'baby foods' of earlier manned spaceflight. Today, many foods are eaten in their normal state with a conventional fork or spoon, but fluids must still be taken through straws from sealed sachets. Such a sachet, containing lemonade, can be seen floating to the right of Baker's head. The primary task of this mission was to deploy NASA's TDRS-E Tracking and Data Relay Satellite.
