It may seem like an out-of-this-world idea – but astronauts aboard the International Space Station (ISS) will bake food fresh in space for the first time ever thanks to a prototype oven designed to make long-duration space flight more hospitable. And what could be a better first-ever food baked fresh in space than DoubleTree’s famous chocolate chip cookie – the ultimate symbol of hospitality and a warm welcome!

Missions are limited to where supply ships can safety restock, but cooking in space will allow missions to explore further than ever before.
