Today, we are proud to share that Uber Eats made our first ever food delivery to space. Expanding our global footprint beyond earth’s surface has been a longtime dream and we are thrilled to partake in a small piece of history.
We teamed up with Japanese entrepreneur and delivery superfan, Yusaku Maezawa, to hand deliver beloved ready-to-eat canned Japanese dishes to the astronauts at the International Space Station. The delivery was made on December 11 at 9:40am EST having traveled 248 miles and 8 hours and 34 minutes since Maezawa’s departure from Earth.
With dishes including boiled mackerel in miso, beef bowl cooked in sweet sauce, simmered chicken with bamboo shoots, and braised pork, Uber Eats and Maezawa treated the astronauts to a delicious meal that was a welcome break from standard space food.
Uber Eats is offering $10 off $20+ orders to the first 24,800 people with promo code SPACEFOOD to celebrate the distance from Earth to the ISS. The promo is available from December 13-19, 2021.
This delivery marks one giant leap for Uber as we’re committed to helping people go anywhere and get anything — now, including space.
