Earlier this week, MoonPie announced plans to send its sweets to the moon on the grounds that the company's history dates back to 1917. The company hopes to be the first brand of its kind on the moon, and it seems to be in line with NASA's new space commercialization program.
Bridenstine responded enthusiastically to this request on Friday, "I will go all out!"
MoonPie has shown on its website the countdown to the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, including behind-the-scenes photos from the mission.
Bridenstine may be involved, but MoonPie also tried to get public support through the Change.org petition, which hopes NASA will send the snack to the moon through its 2024 Artemis mission. The petition has received nearly 1,000 signatures and is nearing completion of its goals.
