Uber made history as the first delivery platform to carry food to the International Space Station when it announced its first-ever food delivery to the station.

Uber Eats joined up with Yusaku Maezawa, a Japanese entrepreneur and delivery expert, to get the food to space.

Maezawa supplied ready-to-eat canned Japanese cuisine to the astronauts aboard the International Space Station during his 12-day orbit.

Among the dishes were boiled fish in miso, beef bowls cooked in sweet sauce, simmering chicken with bamboo shoots, and braised pork.

Maezawa made the delivery on Dec. 11 at 9:40 a.m. EST after traveling 248 miles in 8 hours and 34 minutes.

In addition to adding space miles to their queue, Uber Eats is celebrating the milestone by giving the first 24,800 people who use the promo code SPACE FOOD $10 off $20 or more transactions.
