Curiosity about space is a never-ending affair for humans. We always welcome insights from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). The American space agency has repeatedly amazed us with its images of celestial bodies. But this time NASA’s interesting contribution caught users’ attention for a different reason.
Astronauts can be seen celebrating a “pizza night” aboard the International Space Station (ISS) in the post shared by the agency on June 3. In some photos attached to the post, ISS crew members including Denis Matveev, Oleg Artemyev, Sergey Korsakov, Kjell Lindgren, Jessica Watkins and Samantha Cristoforetti can be seen eating slices of pizza and spending some time together. One of the crew members named Bob Hines also poses with a personal size pizza. In another image, NASA astronaut Jessica Watkins is pictured smiling as she assembles the toppings on her pizza in microgravity. NASA poked fun at Watkins, writing, “Add a chef to your resume.”

But the most exciting fact turned out to be the caption. The caption reads: “Scenes from an orbital restaurant”. According to the information provided with the images, ISS crew members will have the opportunity to eat any food they prefer, even when they are 250 miles (almost 402 km) above the Earth. NASA’s Johnson Space Center is responsible for providing them with all possible facilities.
Food comes from NASA Johnson Space Center’s Space Food Systems Laboratory and crew members can choose from over 200 dishes from the menu, meaning they’re never too far from their favorite foods. “Crew members can choose from about 200 different items for their standard menu – all tested, prepared and packaged by NASA Johnson Space Center’s Space Food Systems Laboratory,” NASA added in the caption.
Since it was shared, the post has garnered a lot of attention on Instagram and has been liked by over 3.2 lakh users. While one person wrote, “You all look adorable,” another user joked, “Space pizza is out of this world.”
