Fried Thai durian to be sent in space

FRIED durian will be the first Thai food item to be sent into space to see how it is affected by weightlessness, reported today (May 30, 2018).

The experiment is part of the “Thai Food to Space” project of Signature Marketing Company Limited. Its adviser is Dr Amarin Pimnoo, who heads the National Space Exploration Project of Daily Foods Company Limited.

If everything goes as planned, the first batch of fried durian will be sent into space in July.

Made on Earth, the fried durian will be floating in space around 4-5 minutes before it is sent back home, after which scientists will see how weightlessness affects the packaging and the fried durian.
