Let me begin this story by telling you that I, like most people on the internet (which is everyone), love pizza. I don’t even mind pineapple on pizza because hey! No Discrimination.
For that reason alone, I really feel bad for the astronauts who spend months floating in outer space. Without pizza.
Recently, NASA astronauts wanted to have a little party at the International Space Station (ISS), but no party is complete without pizza.
When NASA scientist and astronaut, Paolo Nespoli, casually mentioned this to his boss at ISS, the generous boss wasted no time in making sure his team got a well-deserved pizza party.
Paolo posted a video of the astronauts-turned-chefs making and playing with pizza at the ISS.
When you really, really miss pizza… you CASUALLY mention it to the International @Space_Station Boss during a live public event 😉 Thank you Kirk for surprising us with unexpectedly delicious pizzas! #VITAmission pic.twitter.com/WstvG3IKr1

3. That’s the least of our concerns, friend.
What about the breadcrumbs floating around the space station? Is it not dangerous if tiny crumbs enter the instrumentation panels

6. I’m sure the astronauts are happy with tortillas too.
The only thing missing is a proper crust, but I suppose tortillas will have to do until you return to Earth.
