The words
Kitchen technology has reached new [heightens / heights] . Astronauts on the International Space Station have made the universe's first [even / ever] space-baked cookies. The ISS residents said the chocolate chip cookies looked [out / in] of this world. The cookies mark a [first / thirst] in space cookery. They are the very first kind of food to be baked in space from [saw / raw] ingredients. Astronauts' food is [usual / usually] pre-made on Earth. The food is dehydrated or pre-packaged and is heated or [warmth / warmed] up on the space station. The astronauts said [eating / eaten] freshly baked food will make them happy [while / whose] on the space station. It will be a comforting reminder of home. This will be important for astronauts going to the moon or [on / in] the long journey to Mars.

Baking the space cookies was not [was / as] straightforward as the astronauts thought it would [bake / be] . On Earth, cookies take about 20 minutes [to / for] bake in an oven heated [up / to] 150 degrees Celsius (302 degrees Fahrenheit). That was not long [enough / plenty] in space. The first cookie came out totally undercooked. It was more raw [doubt / dough] than cookie. The space bakers [tuned / turned] up the oven's temperature and baked the dough for longer [since / until] they were successful. The fifth cookie they made took 130 minutes to bake.
