In fact, today's Chinese space food has become much more diversified and tastier than that in 2003 when first astronaut Yang Liwei went to space. There were around 30 dishes in the cuisine for his one-day mission.
And when Jing's and Chen's predecessors went on Shenzhou X, more than 80 dishes were provided, including traditional festival food such as mooncakes and zongzi.
