This breakfast taco aboard the ISS actually looks pretty good

Space food is not exactly known for its palatable nature. It usually comes in a bag and is sucked out through a straw to prevent wayward morsels from finding their way into the delicate instruments and life support systems aboard the International Space Station.

But sometimes astronauts just want a damn taco.

U.S. astronaut Tim Kopra tweeted a photo of his space-taco creation and, real talk, it actually looks pretty good. Behold:

So good, in fact, that some people declared that Earth no longer had any appeal.

Then again, perhaps beans on the ISS isn’t such a fantastic idea…

But space tacos and burritos are actually not that new. Here’s Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman of MythBusters working on a space burrito back in 2013.

Space food is still usually freeze-dried and packaged to withstand several months in space before it’s eaten. But, thankfully, it’s also come a long way since the early days of what was essentially like food toothpaste.
