International Space Station colonised by mysterious bugs - including 'alien' bacteria

The ingredients were delivered to the spacecraft after Italian Space Agency astronaut Paolo Nespoli "casually mentioned" how much he missed pizza. They used ingredients that would stick to the pizza crust, which itself needs to be fairly crumb-free so as not to send food bits showering into the electronics. "Since the ISS is completely enclosed, the microbes inside the station come from the people on the ISS and the supplies sent to them". The astronauts had foundations for pizza, tomato sauce, cheese, salami, olives, olive oil, anchovy paste, and pesto.

Paolo tweeted his joy with a video of the crew making the pizzas.

An astronaut released gorgeous footage Tuesday of an aurora while aboard the International Space Station.

"What works when you're preparing a recipe for eight doesn't necessarily work when you're scaling it up for 200", she said. Nespoli, in orbit since July, declared the pizza "unexpectedly delicious". No need to worry about putting the pizza down in between bites - it just floats there.

Once heated, they throw the pizzas to each other like frisbees before eating them.

The International Space Station has been colonised by mysterious strains of bacteria - including some bugs which appear to be thriving in the vacuum of space. Today he has safely returned to Earth. Despite this, the community of microbes living alongside the astronauts appears robust.

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.
