Astronauts have to sacrifice a whole lot of things - the ability to walk on plane surface for starters - in order to achieve their dream of voyaging through space. That view of Earth must be all worth it in the end. Nevertheless, there are some things that one can't just grow out of. For instance, pizza. Whether you are travelling through space or under the sea, you would miss that finely baked crust, with cheese dripping off it, the bursting and overpowering flavour of jalapenos and the crunchy feel of bacon.
The same happened with Paolo Nespoli. The Italian astronaut, currently stationed at the International Space Station (ISS), was missing pizzas so much that he shared this with his boss during a live public broadcast.
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! #VITAmissionpic.twitter.com/WstvG3IKr1- Paolo Nespoli (@astro_paolo) December 2, 2017
If you ask us, these pizzas surely look great for something made in zero gravity. Watch the video here:
