Elon Musk Promise: After the Dragon capsule safely splashed down in the Atlantic near Florida’s shore, the civilian SpaceX Inspiration4 mission was declared a success. While the crew had a great time during the three-day voyage into Earth’s orbit, SpaceX CEO Elon Musk believes the passenger experience could be better. A pizza was the first meal served inside the Dragon capsule. While biting into a slice of pizza in space is an incredible feat in and of itself, the pizza was unfortunately chilly. Musk apologised for the chilly pizza and promised that the Dragon capsule would have hot food and free Wi-Fi on the next voyage.
“Can’t believe we’re eating cold pizza in space,” the Inspiration4 mission tweeted. “It’s incredible!” “Sorry it was cold!” Musk promptly responded. Next time, Dragon will have a meal warmer and free WiFi.”

Starlink will be used by Musk to provide internet access. “As soon as they were above cloud level, we’d use our Ka parabolics or laser linkages for Dragon, Starship, or other spacecraft,” he tweeted.
Inside the Dragon capsule, pizza was not the only meal available. In fact, the crew might be able to eat a substantial meal while travelling across space. Pizza bagels, sandwiches, a veggie platter, Mediterranean lamb, pasta, meatballs, roasted edamame, salami, bacon, and cheddar, pasta bolognese, tortillas, and beef and turkey jerky were among the offerings. Aside from tea and coffee, there were M&Ms, pastries, granola bars, and olives to choose from.
According to Reuters, the three-day mission ended when the SpaceX Crew Dragon capsule, called Resilience, parachuted into calm seas around 7 p.m. EDT (2300 GMT), shortly before sunset, following an automated reentry dive, as seen live on SpaceX’s YouTube page.
