Astronauts Are Eating 'Cheeseburgers' That Look Absolutely Disgusting (Photos)
There's no better feeling in the world than when you take that first delicious bite of a big, juicy burger.
Unless, of course, you just so happen to be an astronaut (or a vegetarian).
Sure, these space cadets may seem like they have it all.
They rock some stylish space gear, ride around in a big badass rocket ship, have a view that would put even the most expensive penthouses to shame and get to float around in space all day.
But there's one thing you definitely shouldn't be jealous of: the food these guys are eating for dinner.
Seriously, if you thought aliens were the scariest things in outer space, you haven't seen anything yet.
On Tuesday, NASA X tried to get in on the #foodporn trend by tweeting a picture of astronaut Terry Virts' space station dinner.
However, NASA might want to start following a few more foodie photogs on Instagram for inspiration because this "space cheeseburger" upload is lightyears away from looking even remotely palatable.
So what on Earth is a space cheeseburger?
Well, by looking at this thing, it's pretty clear the main ingredient in a space burger is terror.
Aside from that, Virts' tweet reported the burger also contained beef patties, Russian mustard, tomato paste, cheese paste and a tortilla.
Technically, this thing shouldn't even be allowed to steal the almighty burger's good name and tarnish its reputation.
This mediocre sandwich doesn't even have buns; it's wrapped in a tortilla, so it's more like a sad, terrifying space taco.
Virts also tweeted this horrifying excuse for a hamburger was "very tasty," so I have a feeling the space station might be running a little low on oxygen, or this man has never been to an In-N-Out during his time here on Earth.
Either way, after seeing this culinary catastrophe, I think it's safe to say I won't be making dinner reservations at the space station anytime soon.
Feast your eyes on the "space cheeseburger."
