This Man Hosted His Own Super Bowl 50 Party That Was Out Of This World- QUITE LITERALLY

We’re talking about Scott Kelly. He’s an astronaut, so there’s a good reason why nobody showed up to his Super Bowl party seeing as though he was in space during the game[1].

It may have felt like the entire world had eyes on Levi’s Stadium Sunday as the Denver Broncos took on the Carolina Panthers for Super Bowl 50 — and it’s true that the viewers included at least one set of eyes in outer space.

Astronaut Scott Kelly hosted a Super Bowl 50 party on the International Space Station, although the exotic locale kept all his potential visitors at bay.

“No one showed up,” Kelly wrote in a Facebook post. “I would have served nachos!”

While flying 250 miles above the San Francisco Bay area Sunday, Kelly couldn’t resist snapping a few photos.

“Got to see the Super Bowl in person after all!” he wrote.

Here’s a pretty cool post from Kelly, aboard the International Space Station…

Got to see the Super Bowl in person after all! But at 17,500MPH, it didn't last long. #YearInSpace
