Learning objectives l.jpg
Learning Objectives

Participants will expand their science content knowledge in the area of Nutrition by:

  • Describing the importance of proper nutrition for our bodies on Earth and for human space exploration.

  • Identifying human body systems that are affected by inadequate nutrition (on Earth and in space).

  • Explaining some challenges in nutrition and food for human exploration and long duration space flight.

Adaptation to Weightlessness

  • Muscle

  • Psychological/ Behavioral/ Performance

  • Bone

  • Fluid shifts, hematological

  • Taste & odor

  • Cardiovascular

  • Neurosensory

  • Gastrointestinal

What is the function of nutrition l.jpg
What is the Function of Nutrition?

  • Psychosocial aspects

  • Meet energy/nutrient requirements

  • Countermeasure

Classroom Project Idea

  • Go to www.mypyramid.gov

  • My Pyramid Tracker can track food intake for 24 hours and give a report

Omega 3 fatty acids l.jpg
Omega-3 Fatty Acids intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

  • Beneficial effects on cholesterol, lipid metabolism, and cardiovascular health

  • Inhibit muscle loss in subjects with hyper-catabolic diseases

  • Protective effects on bone health

Chicken bone in acid l.jpg
Chicken Bone in Acid intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

  • In the classroom, use the “famous” chicken bone in acid lab experiment to demonstrate acid effects on bones

  • See: http://haco.jsc.nasa.gov/pdf/pH Experiment.pdf

  • ….plus, ideas for more on nutrition and bones!


Next stop mars l.jpg
Next Stop: Mars!! intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

  • Nutrition is critical due to length of missions

  • Critical issues:

    • Are vitamins stable after exposure to deep-space radiation?

    • Are nutrients stable for long shelf life (up to 5 years)?


Food system issues l.jpg
Food System Issues intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

  • Nutrient content

  • Palatability

  • Shelf-life

  • Preparation

  • Storage

  • Trash


How will extreme conditions of space affect food supply l.jpg
How will Extreme Conditions of Space Affect Food Supply? intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

  • Closed food system

  • Radiation

  • Long-term storage

  • Depletion of a single nutrient could be deadly after 3 years


For example l.jpg
For Example… intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

Vitamin B1 (thiamine)

  • Easily destroyed by heat and light

  • Deficiency

    • beriberi

    • develops within 2-3 months

    • neurological and cardiovascular effects


Another example l.jpg
Another Example intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

Vitamin C

  • Deficiency

    • Scurvy

    • Bleeding around hair follicles, gums and underneath fingernails

  • Effects of radiation and long-duration storage are unknown for space flight


  • Nutrition research l.jpg
    Nutrition Research intake. Does this necessarily mean they lose weight?

    On Earth and in space:

    • Nutrition is more than just eating food

      • Food choices are important

    • Nutrition affects all body systems

    • Countermeasures for conditions such as osteoporosis
