They're Loving It: Cheeseburgers Will Be Added to ISS Menu

The current record-holder for the longest total time in space, Russian cosmonaut Gennady Padalka, has welcomed a plan to improve the space menu with cheeseburgers.

The Russian Roscosmos space agency reportedly plans to break the monotony of space meals with a new flavor - cheeseburgers in tubes.

A fast-food company earlier approached Roscosmos chief Igor Komarov with an offer to provide cosmonauts with this pasty delicacy in space.

Padalka, recently returned from the International Space Station (ISS), said his US colleague Scott Kelly had taught the space crew how to make burgers at the ISS during a previous space mission.

"Burgers...are not new at the station. We have been making them ourselves from tortillas, meat and fish. Scott Kelly taught us. He made burgers during the previous missions, he is a real burger chef. So we are quite happy about it [the plan]," the cosmonaut said.

On Friday, Padalka gave his first after-mission press conference in Zvyozdny Gorodok (Star City), near Moscow. He has spent 879 days in space over five missions, becoming the new record-holder in June 2015.
