REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – For the first time on record, Cornell University researchers — including Filipino American Apollo Arquiza, attempted to cook fried tofu and hash browns in low gravity conditions.

Arquiza and his group are researching on how to feed astronauts as they travel to Mars by the year 2030.

Experts say it would take about six months to reach Mars.

Arquiza and his team attempted to cook aboard NASA’s G-Force One space simulator using the prototype space fryer they developed at the Cornell lab.

He is confident that with another research grant he could design a fryer for space travel in the near future.
