Neil deGrasse Tyson on Food for Mars Missions

What would astronauts eat on a manned mission to Mars? Neil deGrasse Tyson tells co-host Chuck Nice what's on NASA's menu for Mars, including how they make food taste great over long periods of time without refrigeration and what kind of sustainable livestock and crops make sense for a long-term Martian colony. It's a tasty Cosmic Query with a shelf-life of 3-4 years -- the time it takes to go to and from Mars! And yes, there will be astronaut ice cream. And if you love StarTalk Radio, don't miss out on any StarTalk news
