Video Title:
Astronaut Taste Test
Have you ever had a cold and thought - my food doesn’t taste right. That’s because a lot of your sense of taste relies on being able to smell things. While in space astronauts have a similar problem because without gravity the fluid in their body floats around blocking up the nasal passages. Watch as we conduct a taste test with the astronauts of Space X Crew 4.
