Variety spice of life in space: Over 100 dishes for Chinese astronauts

One hundred types of food. Seven dishes in breakfast and eight each in lunch and dinner. Is it a king's feast? No. A five-star hote's spread? Wrong again. Her's a hint: It's literally out of this world.

When for most of us the food served on planes is just eatable, you might be tempted to think that astronauts eat same bland stuff. Well, not the two Chinese astronauts onboard Tiangong II space lab. For their 33 days' space mission, more than 100 types of food has been packed.

And they are not just everyday dishes. Jing Haipeng, who is on his third space mission, enjoyed a bite of cheese cake on his 50th birthday on Oct 24.
