Astronauts Made Pizzas in Space

NASA blasted special ingredients to make the tasty treat into space after one of the ISS crew casually mentioned how much he missed pizza.

It's all thanks to Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli.

Included on the craft were prepackaged crusts, a squeeze bottle full of pizza sauce, spreadable cheese and toppings including olives and pepperoni.

The members of the crew of the global space station (ISS) has prepared a pizza in zero gravity. Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious".

To do the analysis, the team enlisted Japanese astronaut Koichi Wakata, in space during 2014, to swab 15 surfaces in the space station-things like telephones, computer keyboards and air vents-and sent those samples down to Earth for processing. No need to worry about putting the pizza down in between bites - it just floats there.

In the footage published on Twitter, the astronauts can be seen sticking the ingredients on before spinning them as they float around the cabin.

Astronauts at the International Space Station posted pictures and a video during the weekend of their small, made-from-scratch pizza pies. Today he has safely returned to Earth.

"Our Expedition 53 crew had a blast channeling our inner chef by building #tasty pizzas for movie night", NASA astronaut Bresnik tweeted on December 2.

It's well known that we humans carry a rich ecology with us - there are billions of microbes swarming all over you right this second - but the way microbes are transferred into the places we live and work is proving a rich area of study.
