From what I understand and remember the first cookies baked in space were returned to Earth for testing and I think part of the reason that no cookies baked on the ISS's oven could be eaten is that they could make crumbs. Certainly the most bread-like product regularly consumed on the ISS are tortillas and in part this is because of their low crumb coefficient, and what bread is sent to space is bite-sized, reducing the effective crumb coefficient to nearly zero.

- Keep consistent bedtime
- Go outside
- Pursue a hobby
But what caught my eye is file footage of him about to eat what looks like chocolate cake or perhaps a brownie.
Question: Did astronaut Scott Kelley eat cake (or a brownie) in space? Was it tested for crumb generation and approved for spaceflight?
