宇宙飛行士は精神的にも肉体的にもタフである。しかし、彼らも生身の人間であるから生存のためには 「衣食住」 という要素が欠かせない。宇宙船 (モジュール)宇宙服 (&生命維持装置)、そして宇宙食である。

宇宙食は究極の食物 (&食器) といっても良いだろう。重量、サイズ、密閉度、栄養素、消化吸収、殺菌・腐敗処理、食べやすさ。ストレス解消作用も無視できない。これらを極めた食物こそが宇宙食に相応しいといえる。なお、ここには 「味」 という要素は出てこない。今でこそ相当改善されてはいるが、アポロ当時の宇宙食はかなり 「不味かった」 からである。

もっとも、メニューに限っていえば、美食家も泣いてよろこぶ、、、とまではいかないまでも、結構バラエティーに富んでいる。各人 (飛行士) の好みも反映されていたようだ。 以下はアポロ計画における宇宙食の基本メニューである。
