For the first time, astronauts will be able to bake cookies in space.

  • A supply craft with a specially designed “space oven” along with baking ingredients has been sent to the International Space Station.
  • Hilton’s DoubleTree provided the dough from the famous chocolate chip cookies it gives guests.
  • The whole effort goes beyond just a tasty snack — the whole thing is designed around a series of experiments meant to test how heat and baking ingredients work in zero gravity and space.
