Get a Taste of Jupiter’s Pizza Moon

Pizza Moon

Giving new meaning to the lyrics of That’s Amore, astronomers involved with the SETI organization have found a rather pizza-like occurrence on Io, a moon of Jupiter.

The SETI team, who use powerful telescopes to search for interstellar anomalies, have discovered a series of volcanic eruptions plaguing the moon. The results of all of these lava-fueled explosions? The moon now looks like a delicious pepperoni pie. This has caused the team to nickname Io the “pizza moon.” If only moons were made out of cheese.

None of the world’s pizza chains have announced a thirty minute or less guarantee to or from Jupiter, however. Perhaps after scientists master warp drive technology?
