Pizza and ice cream for as­tro­nauts

The Citizen (Gauteng) - - WORLD -

– As­tro­nauts got a mouth-wa­ter­ing haul with yes­ter­day’s Earth-to-space de­liv­ery – pizza and ice cream.

The Or­bital ATK cap­sule ar­rived at the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion two days af­ter launch­ing from Vir­ginia, car­ry­ing choco­late and vanilla ice cream for the six 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, who has been up there since July.

Ne­spoli used the space sta­tion’s robot arm to grab the cargo ship as they zoomed 420km above the In­dian Ocean. – AP
