Oven sent to ISS for baking cookies

A supply ship was launched by NASA to the International Space Station on November 2. The 3,700 kilograms shipment included an oven for baking cookies. The oven called Zero G Kitchen Space Oven, explores the possibility of making freshly baked goods for space travelers. With NASA eyeing trips to the moon and Mars, homemade food takes on heightened importance. The oven's maximum heat is 177 degrees Celsius, double the temperature of the U.S. and Russian food warmers aboard the space station. Three of the space-baked cookies will be returned to Earth for analysis.
