Watch Astronauts Assemble Pizza in Space

Most everyone enjoys a good pizza party: Even astronauts living aboard the International Space Station.

As this video from NASA shows, assembling pizza in zero gravity is not only possible, it also has delicious results. The inspiration for the pizza feast came from Paolo Nespoli, an Italian astronaut who was craving one of his home country’s national dishes while working on the ISS. NASA’s program manager for the space station, Kirk Shireman, sympathized with his colleague and ordered pizzas to be delivered to the station.

NASA took a little longer responding to the request than your typical corner pizzeria might. The pizzas were delivered via the Orbital ATK capsule, and once they arrived, the ingredients had to be assembled by hand. The components didn’t differ too much from regular pizzas on Earth: Flatbread, tomato sauce, and cheese served as the base, and pepperoni, pesto, olives, and anchovy paste made up the toppings. Before heating them up, the astronauts had some fun with their creations, twirling them around like "flying saucers of the edible kind,” according to astronaut Randy Bresnik.

In case the pizza party wasn’t already a success, it also coincided with movie night on the International Space Station.

JELL-O's New Edible Slimes Are As Fun to Eat As They Are to Play With

JELL-O has good news for anyone who has ever gotten hungry watching slime videos on YouTube. As MovieWeb reports, the snack brand has added two new products to their JELL-O Play line: Monster Slime and Unicorn Slime, both of which are 100 percent edible.

JELL-O edible slime starts as a powdered mix. At home, kids and parents can stir three scoops of the powder together with one scoop of warm water for 30 seconds then add an additional tablespoon of warm water to make the slime.

Like the slime you find in toy stores or the DIY kind, this slime is meant to be played with. "The slime stretches if you pull it slowly, but snaps if you pull it apart fast," the product description reads. "It's firm if you squeeze it, but it can also pour and drip like a liquid!" And after they're done playing with their slime, kids (and fun-loving adults) can eat it. As for the slime that does't get eaten and ends up on clothes and hands, JELL-O says it washes off easily with soap and water.

The JELL-O slime comes in two flavors, lime for Monster Slime and strawberry for Unicorn Slime, and will be available in select stores beginning in December. It's part of a line of interactive snack products from JELL-O, which includes pudding pop molds and dirt cups kits.

A Home Alone-Themed Clothing Line Has Arrived Just in Time for Holiday Party Season

Little Nero’s Pizza isn’t fiddlin’ around, and neither are The Roosevelts. Just in time for holiday party season, the apparel company—more popularly known as RSVLTS—has launched a clothing line based on Home Alone, the John Hughes-penned 1990 family classic starring Macaulay Culkin.

The logo for Little Nero’s, the fictional pizza chain that Kevin ordered from in the film, has been printed on a red ball cap and a long-sleeved T-shirt. The latter has logos on both the front and back, with the tagline—"No Fiddlin’ Around!"—printed on the sleeve. You can even order a replica of the jacket worn by the pizza delivery kid who was verbally assaulted by a recording of a shoot-'em-up gangster movie.

A couple of button-up Oxfords are also available. One features everyone's favorite inept burglars, Harry and Marv, in various stages of distress, like being lit on fire or smacked in the face with a red-hot iron (against a sky blue backdrop, no less). Another design features tiny Home Alone-themed icons: an airplane, a pizza, the Eiffel Tower, a bucket of paint, and more of the Wet Bandits, of course.

Lastly, there’s a “battle plan” hoodie featuring Kevin’s hand-drawn blueprint for outsmarting the burglars. All of the items are officially licensed by 21st Century Fox and range in price from $30 to $75.
