Getting to explore space sounds pretty darn cool, but the experience comes with many sacrifices. Of course, time outside the family must be hard, but one of the most painful losses is having to leave delicious pizza on Earth.
It is safe to assume that mealtimes on board the International Space Station can get a bit monotonous. This week, however, the astronauts got a break from their humdrum rehydrated dinners when mission control sent them some surprising ingredients.
Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli had a hankering for some good old-fashioned pizza. So much so, that he had even started seeing pizzas in the clouds over Earth. During a recent live public event, Nespoli told his Houston handlers that he missed pizza. The bosses back on Earth took note, and Nespoli and his crewmates took delivery of their very special space pizza.
The video shows the crew working together to add sauce and toppings to their pies before wrapping them up in foil to be heated. Regardless of taste, there’s no doubt that making pizza is definitely more entertaining after you leave the planet.
