Russian space food. Some of these food products are preserves kept in special aluminum cans (upper centre), or squeezable tubes (upper right). Other food products are dehydrated to lessen their weight, and then vacuum-packed. This range of cosmonaut food is made by the Biryulyovsky plant, which has specialised in these foods for more than 50 years. Other companies make special bread and cheese products. Photographed in April 2007.
