TOKYO: Japanese astronauts in for long-term stays at the International Space Station can look forward to having ramen noodles, rice balls and green tea on their menus, Japan's space agency said Wednesday.

With help from companies such as Nissin Food Products, the agency, JAXA, has come up with 29 dishes intended to provide Japanese spacefarers with familiar food in their "bonus packs," the agency said in a statement.
