• Question: Hi. I heard about the unmanned space rocket (full of food) explosion. Was it a GREAT BIG pain to have to re do all the food? How did it explode?

      There is a good supply of food on the space station, so it was not such a problem. More important was to find the reason for the failure so we can make sure it does not happen again and again.
      I guess the crew was more upset about the new experiments. Those take a long time to produce and send to the ISS.
