Space is a 'burrito of awesomeness' says our new favorite astronaut
Space. It's awesome.
Just ask NASA astronaut Jack Fischer, who just flew in space for the very first time.
After arriving safe and sound at the International Space Station on Thursday, his words — like Neil Armstrong's "one giant leap for mankind"— will surely inspire future generations of astronauts.
"It's a burrito of awesomeness smothered in awesome sauce, baby. It's sooo beautiful."
Damn, I've never been that excited about anything in my life. Or hungry, for space and burritos.
Look at those smiles. Like a thermonuclear reaction of pure joy.
Fischer uttered his now famous burrito analogy while talking to his wife. Later, his daughter congratulated him for fulfilling the dream he's had since he was 6 years old (*wipes tear from eye*).
Jack already got his ISS crewmate to do a flip on camera — a sign that he'll be the life of the party for the six months he's up there.
So whenever you're feeling down, remember good ol' Jack floating in orbit on the ISS, spreading his enthusiasm across space.
