I would love to be astronaut. In reality, I usually eat well. For me, there would be no problem eating dried fruits and seeds in space.

No. Not at all. My favourite snacks include confectionery, pastries and dough.

No, it sounds cool but I don't want to be an astronaut. I can't live far from home and far from my family for a long time. It would be boring and annoying. On the other hand, there is one thing that I really want to feel if I would be an astronaut, That is how it feels to stand in zero gravity, I think it would be an indescribable experience.

why not? I would like to know what it feels when you are out there without gravity, floating in the air inside of one of those spacecrafts orbiting earth. Some people might see it as a boring profession, but i think like everything in life, it has more to do with the passion and love for what you do.
My favorite snacks are ice cream and biscuits.

I woudn't like to be an astronaut because I woudn't be in a place closed without sun light, rounded by all the dark in the space.
My favorite snack is some seeds and nuts like: mani, maranion seeds, and some dried fruits.

My favorite snack is fries and peanuts. Ice cream is allways welcome as well!

Of course I wanna be an astronaut because always I wanted go to the space. However, I think my favourite snaks are not so healty because I like chocolates, popcorn and spicy peanuts.

I would not like to be an astronaut, because I am claustrophobic, and I am surely too bad enough at scientific tasks to be in a space station !
Ma favorite snack is protein cake because I do sports very often.
I also like doing ma pastries myself because I eat gluten free.

I don't think i would appreciate to be an astronaut.
I like to eat fresh fruits on earth ! It don't seem to be easy to eat when food is flying.
Nevertheless, i appreciate to see Samantha eating in the station. Thanks a lot to her to let us show the way she eats on board !

I wish i were an astronasmus,i would eat those all snacks before went back to the earth.
