WATCH: Italian space crew prepare pizza and they loved it!
How would it be to have a pizza in space? But before you have, it must be underlined how would you prepare it without all ingredients at hand? Well, a random wish to have pizza was fulfilled by the supply spacecraft managers.
Paolo Nespoli, 60, Europe’s oldest astronaut and on his third trip to space, casually mentioned he was missing Italy’s most famous export during a live link.
A supply spacecraft in mid-November brought all the necessary ingredients: sauce, cheese, pepperoni, anchovy paste, tomatoes and more.
Now NASA has released a video showing the crew aboard the International Space Station tucking into their treats.
It shows astronauts playfully using the lack of gravity to spin the pizza on their fingers and pass them in front of the camera.
NASA says in the early days of space travel astronauts had to rough it: food came in dried cubes or was served in toothpaste-like tubes.
