US military food scientists came up with a high tech kit, using the best of several new preservation technologies. Retort pouches (the popular name for thermostabilized, laminated pouches named after the retort steam cooker) were put to their first real test when the Space Program was looking for delicious, easy to prepare, "normal" food that wouldn't increase human stress. They have been successfully feeding astronauts on the moon and in flight ever since.
