Astronauts on Endeavour used a special kitchen, called a galley, to prepare meals in space. The galley’s oven heats food, and a rehydration station adds hot or cold water to food and drinks. Water for the rehydration station comes from the orbiter’s fuel cells. The galley on display at the California Science Center is the Shuttle Orbiter Repackaged Galley (SORG), andEndeavour was the first orbiter to use it. Later, all the orbiters were updated to include the SORG.
- Conventional oven (no microwave ovens on the shuttle)
- Rehydration station for adding water back into dried foods and drinks
