NASA Apollo 11 Meal Canister: Lunch? I Thought You Said “Launch!”

 |  |  |

The Japanese are renowned food segregationists. This is where the Bento box comes from that keeps all your eats separate, yet together. If you like your foods not to touch, and are a fan of the space program, I might have just the ticket for you.

This NASA-inspired lunch box has three food storage containers to keep your lunch or snacks ready to go, and looks like a stack of old mission film canisters. The backside of the canister has an Apollo 11 patch with timestamps 07201969 20:17:40 and 20:17:46. I’m not sure what the times were, but July 20, 1969 was the date when humans first landed on the moon.

Each of the containers has 20 fl. oz. capacity and the box is made of metal. That means no microwaving them or sparks will surely fly. Each bowl is 2.6″ tall and 5.4″ in diameter; it’s 11″ tall when stacked. These would also make great food bowls for your doggo. You can grab the set at ThinkGeek for $24.99.
