I thought "there MUST have been chicken nuggets in space, they send Americans up all the time" so I looked up all the known NASA menus...
They have sent chicken patties (larger, round), chicken teryaki & similar, but never nuggets. Well done! You beat America in this space race.— Bob Davies (@bobbigmac) October 14, 2020
Lots will ask 'Why?', but the real question is 'Why not?'
Well done, a applaud this.— Chris Amps (@ChrisAmps) October 14, 2020
