An astronaut takes this meal with him to the International Space Station

German astronaut Matthias Maurer will take venison and potato soup in his luggage when he blasts off to the International Space Station at the end of October.

Maurer, 51, told a news conference on Thursday that “typical German” food had been prepared for him but that he had not yet tasted it.

“I will be sharing the food with my crewmates and I am sure it will be very tasty and everyone will be waiting for it,” he added.

He explained that the main goal of the trip is to conduct research, adding that he and his colleagues will conduct between 300 to 350 experiments.

NASA astronauts Thomas Marshbourne, Raja Chari and Kayla Barron will blast off with Maurer using the Dragon capsule, developed by Elon Musk’s private company, SpaceX.

The astronauts are scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The astronauts will conduct experiments at an altitude of about 400 km over six months – in addition to completing a field mission.

The crew is scheduled to dock with the International Space Station on October 31.

Maurer said he is looking forward to photographing the Earth from above after spending a year traveling the world.
