"Apart from the food, we are also tasked with providing food-warmer technology, stainless steel cutlery and a waste disposal pack," Defence Food Research Laboratory director Anil Semwal told Times of India.
India plans to send three people to space as part of Mission Gaganyaan. The Indian Space Research Organisation's mission is significant as it would make India one of the four countries in the world after Russia, US, and China to launch a manned space flight. Last week, ISRO chief K Sivan said that four astronauts have been identified for training that will begin in the third week of January in Russia.
