    We might sometimes talk about eating crap on a night in, but thatís nothing compared to the more literal crap future astronauts could well find themselves chowing down on. Thatís thanks to researchers at Penn State University, who have been using a research grant from NASA to develop technology for breaking down solid and liquid waste, and transforming it into food thatís hygienic and safe for humans ó albeit something you probably wonít be serving at a dinner party anytime soon. The resulting foodstuff is high in both protein and fat, and apparently not dissimilar to savory British sandwich spread, Marmite.

    Marmite tastes like shit.

    Who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness;
    Who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter!

    It could really change the menu if people were a bit loose, you would go from meatloaf to meatballs and gravy, just sayin"

    I was thinking of joining the space program. I think I'm glad I didn't!

    MREs came along long after I was gone, I ate C-Rations, there was LRPs that were new and under trial and it was issued to the Special Forces and those small detachments that lived out in the hamlets because most had no mess hall.
