Full Description: This wide-angle view depicts the Orbital Workshop (OWS) wardroom/galley located in the lower level of the OWS. The galley in the wardroom provided the daily supply of food; galley-located equipment was used for preparation and disposal of food. The Skylab astronauts used the wardroom as kitchen and dining room. The hexagonal food table, shown in the middle of this image, allowed three crewmen to simultaneously heat their food and eat their meals in an efficient and comfortable marner. Chairs were pointless in the zero-gravity environment. The table also supported components of the water system, including the water chiller and the wardroom water heater.
