Astronauts have made the first space-baked cookies. They look out of this world. They are the first food baked in space from raw ingredients. Space food is usually made on Earth. It is then heated up in space. Freshly baked food will make astronauts happy. It will remind them of home. This is important if they go to Mars.

The astronauts thought baking the cookies would be easier. Cookies take 20 minutes to bake. The space cookies needed longer. The first cookie was undercooked. The astronauts baked the fifth cookie for 130 minutes. No one knows how it tastes. It is in a laboratory in the USA. Scientists will test it to see if it is safe to eat.
