[i]Nutritionists and cooks have prepared 80 foods, from Kung Pao Chicken and deshelled shrimp to frozen dry fruits, for the trio of Zhai Zhigang, Liu Boming and Jing Haipeng, according to Chen Bin, who is in charge of food supply to the astronauts.
For vinegar-loving Jing, the seasoning is well at hand, as various seasoning sauces are provided on board. The astronaut is from northern Shanxi Province, where vinegar is a favorite condiment for locals.
The food heater on board has a stronger electricity supply than that on Shenzhou-6 as it is connected to the main power supply, which will make sure their rice can be fully cooked, Chen said.
The foods are kept in retort pouches. "We have tried to make them taste like stir-fried dishes they have on the earth," Chen said.[/i]
[i]No toilet was on board of the previous two manned spaceships. The men had to wear diapers.
But this time a toilet is set up. The toilet seat is tailor-made to astronauts' figure and it also includes a separate urinal.[/i]
