WASHINGTON (AP) -- When it comes to grabbing a bite to eat, the international space station is living up to its first name.

It's a veritable food court of international cuisine, says new resident Nicole Stott of Clearwater, Florida. She will stay aboard the space station until November.

Stott said she found that for different meals she could sample foods from various parts of the world: U.S., Canada, Japan, Europe and Russia.

"I think you can find something for anyone," Stott said in a Friday night news conference by the 13 members of the joint crews of the space shuttle Discovery and space station.

Stott is moving into the space station, after getting a ride on the shuttle.
