The social media-friendly astronauts then recorded themselves making several personal-size pizzas as the ingredients floated in the air against a backdrop of high-tech space equipment. Well, let us explain a bit here.

On 14th November, 2017, a commercial supply ship arrived at the International Space Station (ISS) carrying all sorts of goodies for the six astronauts in space.

It is also known that the pizza was prepared specifically for the movie night.

Yes, when NASA scientist and astronaut, Paolo Nespoli, who is now at ISS as part of Expedition 53, mentioned it casually to his boss and manager Kirk Shireman about missing pizza - little did he know the ingredients would reach him in a special delivery.

The video shows the crew gathering together as they add sauce and toppings to the pies in zero gravity before wrapping them up in foils.

It sure looks like one hell of a pizza party in space! It might not be as good as Earth pizza, but this batch was "unexpectedly delicious", said Nespoli.
