Even the most mundane tasks are harder in space, which is precisely why there’s nothing but respect for astronaut Samantha Cristoforetti’s deft taco assembly in this clip from the European Space Agency. Cristoforetti (the same astronaut who pioneered the International Space Station’s first espresso machine) had to endure the circus-act rigmarole of cutting open packets while storing a spoon in her mouth, affixing trash to a sticky board, spreading ingredients on a hovering tortilla, and, occasionally, plucking a rogue bit of quinoa from the air. Yes, yes, quinoa on a taco — but she’s from Europe, okay?
