When I think of food eaten in space I usually think of freeze dried meals regenerated with water and picture it pretty bland. What I learned from watching CMDR Chris Hadfield was that the food is pretty good. Except they didn’t have pizza. Until now.
A commercial supply ship arrived at the International Space Station two days after launching from Virginia. Besides NASA equipment and experiments, the Orbital ATK capsule holds chocolate and vanilla ice cream for the six station astronauts, as well as make-your-own flatbread pizzas.
Astronauts always crave pizza in orbit, but it’s been particularly tough for Italy’s Paolo Nespoli. He’s been up there since July and has another month to go.
