The Mediet experiment, demonstrating the use of the Mediet food system, is to be performed by two Russian cosmonauts, Alexander Kaleri and Gennadi Padalka, on board the International Space Station.
The system consists of an ergonomic tray, made of aluminium, with five items of Mediterranean food from Italy: dried tomatoes, mature cheese, piadina bread (special Italian white bread), peaches and chocolate.
Mediet sets an example of how various international food menus can be delivered to the ISS in order to increase the variety of food available for the Station's crew.
