MoonPie photoshopped its treat onto a NASA picture of the Apollo moon lander.


NASA/MoonPie.

You would not consume SunChips on the moon, would you? No, you would consume a damn MoonPie, a cake-like sweet development with a space-y history.

If the MoonPie business and NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine have their method, an astronaut may in fact get to bite down on a MoonPie while hanging out on the moon. This would develop a crash of food popular culture and science so extreme, it would swelter social networks back in the world.

MoonPie set out its case for sending its cake to the moon previously today, mentioning its history of moon fascination going back to the sweet’s development in1917 The business wishes to be the very first brand name on the moon, which appears to suit NASA’s brand-new open-arms position on commercialization of area

Bridenstine reacted to the plea on Friday with a passionate, “I’m all in!”

MoonPie and NASA are currently on great terms. The confection business has actually been including a countdown to the 50 th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing on its site with behind-the-scenes pictures from the objective.

Bridenstine may be on board, however MoonPie is likewise attempting to create assistance from the general public with a Change.org petition asking NASA to send out the treat along on its prepared 2024 Artemis objective to return human beings to the moon. The petition is nearing its objective of 1,000 signatures.

Our next huge leap for mankind may be powered by a MoonPie sugar rush.
