Astronauts have held the first ever pizza party in space!

NASA's space station manager, Kirk Shireman, took pity on Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli's pizza craving and, in mid-November, shipped up all the ingredients on an Orbital ATK capsule. He mentioned that he was really missing his favourite food Pizza, so NASA made a decision to send him up the ingredients.

You CASUALLY mention it to the International Space Station boss during a live public event. The astronauts had foundations for pizza, tomato sauce, cheese, salami, olives, olive oil, anchovy paste, and pesto.

"What works when you're preparing a recipe for eight doesn't necessarily work when you're scaling it up for 200", she said. Sure, time away from family must be rough, but one of the most heartbreaking losses is having to leave delicious pizza behind on Earth.

The astronauts released footage Saturday of the outer space pizza party and gave the term "flying saucers" a whole new meaning.

And sometimes, despite their best efforts, some foods just will never be space friendly, like cheesecake.

While the menu is fairly expansive, everyone is bound to miss some of their favorite foods, like pizza. Today he has safely returned to Earth.

Bresnik dubbed the crew the "Intergalactic Pizza Devouring Squad", or IPDS.

In a study published Tuesday in the journal PeerJ, a team of scientists presents an overview of groups of microorganisms that share a common living space, known as microbial communities, aboard the ISS.

Earlier this year British spaceman how gross dead skin from his unused feet would float around the ISS "like parmesan" if he didn't take his socks off in the airlock.
