Short Title: Deep Space Food Storage validation
Responsible HRP Element: Human Health Countermeasures
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Planned-Funded - Task expected to be within budget
Procurement Mechanism(s):
This task will determine the effect of deep space radiation on nutrition and quality of spaceflight foods in various storage scenarios over extended durations to inform food storage design for exploration missions.

While this is a "Flight" task,
it is a food storage study in deep space, so it does not need human subjects. However, it will require crew time to put foods into storage as directed and to send them back to Earth for analysis at predetermined time points.
