Eat real astronaut food with Freeze Dried Astronaut Ice Cream
Originally developed for the early Apollo Space missions, real ice cream is frozen to -40 degrees and then vacuum dried and placed in a special foil pouch. Freeze drying removes water from the ice cream by lowering the air pressure to a point where ice shifts from a solid to a gas. How do they do it? The ice cream is placed in a vacuum chamber and frozen until the water crystallizes. The air pressure is lowered, creating a partial vacuum, forcing air out of the chamber; next heat is applied, vaporizing the ice; finally a freezing coil traps the vaporized water. This process continues for hours, resulting in a freeze-dried neapolitan ice cream slice. When you put it on your tongue, it reconstitutes into creamy yummy tasting ice cream. Dehydrated ice cream product will arrive in bite size pieces/chunks. (#9A323) A ComputerGear exclusive. Item in stock unless noted above.
