Pizza for everyone on the International Space Station: How the crew enjoyed it, courtesy of NASA

More than 400 kilometers above Earth, the crew of the International Space Station enjoyed a pizza party courtesy of NASA.

Thanks to some images released by the North American Aerospace Agency, astronauts and cosmonauts conversed on a happy day, where they used ingredients tested, prepared and packaged by NASA’s Space Food Laboratory Systems.

The biggest challenge was how to prepare the pizza in microgravity, a test the crew of the International Space Station passed.

In the group image shared by NASA are the Russians Denis Matveev, Oleg Artemyev, Sergey Korsakov; the Americans Kjell Lingren and Jessica Watkins and the Italian Samantha Cristoforetti.

Incidentally, at the end of May, Watkins celebrated her birthday aboard the International Space Station, with a cupcake that she and her teammates enjoyed.

NASA robotics and suit tests, this Wednesday at the International Space Station

This Wednesday, on the International Space Station automated robotics activities were developed throughout the day, in addition to the testing of advanced suits.

The Expedition 67 crew also ensured that communications and life support systems continued to operate in excellent condition.

NASA explains that in the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) Kibo laboratory module, work has been carried out with the Astrobees, two free-flying robots that navigate autonomously.

Watkins moved parts inside Kibo and activated the Astrobees, working autonomously all day.

These devices were tested in 2019 on Earth, and enter service on the ISS three years later.

Each toaster-sized cube-shaped device uses uplink control algorithms, uploading video so scientists can monitor its automated capabilities from Earth.

Regarding the suits, NASA specifies that Watkins tested a specialized radiation protection vest, while Cristoforetti was using youan experimental garment to monitor the health of the crew, with sensors to wirelessly transmit data from the cardiovascular system.
