Going to space is the ultimate adventure, but it's also fraught with challenges — some big and some small. The tiniest margin of error can determine if a mission is a success or a failure. But other concerns, though far less dramatic, are also important to those who venture into the final frontier. Concerns like what to make for dinner and how to eat it in zero gravity.

Astronaut Charlie Camarda and space nutritionist Sara Zwart chat with Dave Mosher of Popular Science, giving us an insider's perspective on some of the less-discussed challenges of life in space. They'll talk about what it's like to go to space, how astronauts keep themselves healthy in literally out-of-this-world conditions, and how space-based research is helping scientists better understand the human body and its needs, both on and off the Earth.

Afterward, some of us will go to Whole Food nearby for dinner.  Look for me in my "NASA" baseball cap.
