Uber Eats now in Space
The online food ordering and company delivery company made history as it has made its first n space at the International Space Station. The food was delivered by Japanese billionaire Yusaku Maezawa who arrived at the ISS after a nine-hour rocket journey. Maezawa plans to on the ISS for 12 days.
For the foods that were delivered, the package included ready-to-eat canned food which consisted of a beef bowl cooked in a sweet sauce, boiled mackerel in miso, chicken with bamboo shoots and braised pork, as per the report. The parcels were hand delivered to the astronauts by Maezawa himself.
Maezawa started his journey to space from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan on Wednesday. Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi said in a statement. “One small handoff for Yusaku Maezawa, one giant delivery for Uber Eats! Maezawa gets a thumbs up on this delivery, even though it to ok a bit longer than the usual 30 minutes to arrive.”
Maezawa stated that he spent pretty much $80 million on his trip. Before his trip he announced on twitter that he will give away money from space. Previously Maezawa made headlines in 2018 when he bought all the seats on SpaceX’s first tourist flight around the moon scheduled for 2023. According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index he is currently worth $3.4 billion.
Maezawa said in a statement “The most memorable moments were when I saw the International Space Station from Soyuz just before the docking and when we entered after the docking.
We all remember the time William Shatner, captain kirk himself went to space. Space tourism company Blue Origin won the hearts of all Star trek fans when it took the former Star Trek actor up to kiss the Karman line, where Earth’s atmosphere and outer space meet. Nowadays space travel is only accessible to those who are fit physically and of course, can afford. This might change in the coming 10 or 20 years in the future according to Maezawa. Still, this is a monumental event in the history of space travel.
To celebrate this monumental event Uber Eats has offered the first 24,800 people a discount of 10 dollars on an order that amounts to more than 20 dollars. People with the promo code SPACEFOOD can have the offer and the promo will be available from 13 to 19 December.
