If only putting a spin on a system mimicked gravity with a fair degree of accuracy, then we could just spin a hot plate with a closed container and get pseudo-convection.

Alas.

They are combining increased "gravity" with rotation. They need a bigger centrifuge to separate the effects.

My fellow Americans, we cannot...shall not...WILL not allow a gap to develop in space frying technology. It has taken us too many years to perfect the art of deep frying anything that is even remotely edible in order to make us the roundest and heartiest people on the planet.

WE invented pants above a 50-inch waist. WE created both the riding lawnmower and the extra-large recliner with places for snacks and drink holders. WE came up with the Segway, the butter-in-a-stick, and velcro. WE invented both the rotating spaghetti fork and also the motorized ice-cream cone because twisting our wrists is exhausting. We shall do this.

If they ever make chips, they better make sure they're not ruffled.

Hot oil + micro-gravity = farkING BAD IDEA

Wouldn't it be simpler to 3D print the food already fried? I thought that's the future? Are you a Luddite?

Don't be stupid. Ruffled chips are clearly superior in taste and represent the space-age technology we need. People like you are holding science back with your flat two dimensional chips.

In that case, they'd better make sure to pack an inanimate carbon rod.

This has gotta be a worse frying idea than cooking bacon while nude.

My friend, you BAKE bacon. You don't fry it. But then again I use high-end bacon.

Baking bacon doesn't have the same visceral effect as frying it up on the stovetop. Definitely the sizzle, not the steak, so to speak.

I am sorry but frying anything in bacon fat always makes it better therefor frying bacon in bacon fat is the most genius thing evar.  Though baking it is  the bestest way to get the bacon fat to fry all of your foods.

I believe we possess all the resources and talents necessary. But the facts of the matter are that we have never made the national decisions or marshaled the national resources required for such leadership. We have never specified long-range goals on an urgent time schedule, or managed our resources and our time so as to insure their fulfillment.

I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of frying chicken in space, and enjoying it as safely as on Earth. No single space project in this period will be more impressive to mankind, or more important for the long-range exploration of space; and none will be so difficult or expensive to accomplish.

In the last paragraph, they kind of write-off fries in space:

"for now it looks as though fries in space are off the menu."

But in the paragraph just prior, they hint at the solutiion:

"if you want fries (or anything else) to deep-fry faster, making them crispy in a shorter time, cooking in a bit of extra gravity helps ...  worth knowing for the food industry, where centrifugal "flash-frying" might be worth a try."

If Mickey's Disease comes up with a centrifugal frier, I'm sure it could be adapted for Quantum Apostrophe's space use.

Could you imagine a centrifugal flash-fryer? Could you imagine what an accident with a centrifugal flash-fryer would look like?

And once it breaks down and blasts burning oil all over the Mcdonalds kitchen the resulting lawsuits and workers comp will promptly end it.

That's also the last thing you need in space... burning oil flying everywhere.

its worth it... I say we test the prototype in that new bigelow inflatable module they are planning on attaching to the ISS... just make sure to keep the door closed.

Just what we need. A floating ball of scalding hot grease floating around a space station.

IMO, being trapped in a metal tube filled with oily frying grease vapor would make me want to claw my own skin off.

Unfortunately, there will not be beer in space. Without gravity, you cannot get rid of the carbonation properly (i.e. burp) and astronauts suffer serious gastrointestinal distress.

The solution is therefore whiskey.

So the British Broadcasting Corporation has made a website that is accessible from anywhere in the world BUT Britain...

that's different.

There's soda in space.

There was soda in space. Experiments are good things. Still, they are not going to knock back a few carbonated beverages while watching the game in microgravity.
