Unless you're one of the 44 active astronauts in the NASA Astronaut Corps (or an alien from another planet), you may never get to know how "space pizza" tastes. But thanks to a minute-long video astronaut Randy Bresnik uploaded from aboard the International Space Station (ISS), we earth-bound people can see how it's made and what it looks like.
So how did space pizza come about? During a live public event, Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli simply mentioned how much he missed pizza to his ISS boss. Soon the six astronauts received a package with everything they needed to make some pretty interesting looking space pies for their movie night.
Really funny video! 🍕🚀🛰 I wonder what kind of SIMPLE things astronauts miss from home 🤔— Sogdiane (@Sogdiane) December 2, 2017
Very funny boys, ha, ha, ha...and now, who of you is going to clean up the sticky cheese and the pepperoni attached all along the electronic devices wall? Not me!— Sonia Ribas (@son_ribas) December 3, 2017
Astronaut Nespoli this video made my day! I wish y'all the best in health & spirit. Are y'all going to have any Christmas decorations or your family traditions at the space station?— Cathy Lee Boyter (@CDBoyter) December 2, 2017
Was that some kind of oven/suitcase thing, or did you eat it all cold (shiver)?— Kevin Reader (@TechKev) December 3, 2017
A suitcase doohickey to heat the pizza eh, nice. I always wondered how they ate up there- considering fire is a huge no-no 😂— Lucie Walker (@StormyLucie) December 3, 2017
