  • This film, which takes place in a Whirlpool facility, opens with a quick-cut sequence of a chef holding different kinds of food. The chef explains how new food processes were created to feed the astronauts. The film describes NASA diet requirements, showing some food preparation for astronauts in "space food kitchens." Winter Haven is the site of orange juice processing, which results in freeze dried orange juice powder.
