Drop in conversation with the head of the ISS program, kirk Chairmana that he really misses national food, Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli did not expect such a surprise.

"Since the ISS is completely enclosed, the microbes inside the station come from the people on the ISS and the supplies sent to them", Coil said.

Included on the craft were prepackaged crusts, a squeeze bottle full of pizza sauce, spreadable cheese and toppings including olives and pepperoni.

Astronauts, like Kjell Lindgren and Brit Tim Peake, share incredible photographs taken from space. Kelly's remarkable voyage is detailed in his new memoir, Endurance: A Year in Space, a Lifetime of Discovery, an exhilarating saga that looks forward to the future of spaceflight-including an eventual mission to Mars.

Not the first time Italian astronaut prepares in the conditions of weightlessness.
