Comments Off on Cryo: Virginia Tech Creates Giant 170-Pound Jellyfish Robot!

We’ve long been familiar with the traditional astronauts’ fare of liquid meals and freeze-dried food stuffs —oh, and Tang —but plans to send astronauts further afield and beyond the reach of supply vessels, the AFT has found it must create healthier space-meals and methods to grow food in zero-gravity.
