Uber Eats is an online food ordering and delivery platform launched by Uber in 2014. The company teamed up with Japanese entrepreneur and delivery superfan, Yusaku Maezawa, to hand-deliver ready-to-eat canned Japanese dishes to the astronauts at the space station.
The delivery was made on December 11, having traveled 248 miles and 8 hours and 34 minutes since Maezawa’s departure from Earth.
“This delivery marks one giant leap for Uber as we’re committed to helping people go anywhere and get anything — now, including space.”, Uber stated.
The dishes included boiled mackerel in miso, beef bowl cooked in sweet sauce, simmered chicken with bamboo shoots and braised pork – a welcome break from standard space food. It’s now the first food delivery service to send food to the ISS, the company claimed in a statement.
