Papa John's to Deliver Atlantis Astronauts a Pizza That's 'Out of This World'

Space Shuttle astronaut Suni Williams says of return to Earth: " can't wait for a good piece of pizza."

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 22, 2007--After spending six months aboard the Atlantis Space Shuttle eating nothing but pre-packaged, gravity-defying meals, Astronaut Sunita "Suni" Williams has only one thing on her mind as she prepares to return to solid ground - pizza!

Williams, who has set the record for the longest single spaceflight by a woman, was recently quoted as saying, "I can't wait for a good piece of pizza," regarding her return to Earth. And Papa John's will be quick to provide Williams with a pizza that's out of this world!

As a special thank you to Williams for her time spent in outer space, Papa John's will welcome her back with a free pizza of her choice. The pizza will be delivered to her whenever she is able to receive it - immediately following the shuttle's landing or upon returning to her home base in Houston.

In addition, Papa John's will provide Williams and the rest of the Atlantis flight crew with a year's worth of free pizza...no doubt a treat after six months of dehydrated food aboard Atlantis!
