With the advancement of space technology, an increasing number of countries and actors are entering space and there are predictions of long-term space missions. As a result, power is becoming more important. The challenge is therefore to be able to meet the different needs of crews who spend an increasingly prolonged time in orbit. Companies conducting food research in space could positively impact the food we consume on Earth. This research could help address the challenge of feeding a growing global population, as well as the need for easy-to-prepare and consuming food during emergencies.
Interesting initiatives have arisen in Latin America and Italy, and entrepreneurial forces are operating, aware of the importance of what is at stake. Faithful to its mission as a bridge between the two continents, the IILA with a series of initiatives and projects facilitates dialogue and the exchange of information and knowledge for the sustainable development of space in its member countries.
