NASA just sent lasers, E. Coli, pizza and ice cream to the ISS on the Orbital ATK’s Cygnus Spacecraft.

On Sunday, NASA launched some 7,400 pounds of cargo aboard commercial space company Orbital ATK’s Antares rocket from the Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

The delivery  included scientific samples, supplies and some goodies to keep the six astronauts on board the ISS cheerful as Thanksgiving and Christmas approach. And who doesn’t want E.coli for the holidays! (www.newsweek.com, November 13, 2017)
