It been eaten by millions of college students and office workers on overtime. It's been sent into space as lunch for NASA astronauts. It's the instant noodle, invented by Momofuku Ando, who died on January 6, 2007. Thank you for creating something that kept me from starving to death the last 2 years of my life. Rest in peace...

Did anyone else read the rest of the article? It's seriously great.

Ando was inspired to develop the instant noodle after coming upon a long line of people on a cold night shortly after World War II waiting to buy freshly made ramen at a black market food stall, according to Nissin. The experience convinced him that "Peace will come to the world when the people have enough to eat," it said.

Showcasing his Space Ram noodles in front of reporters, Ando said: "I'm happy I've realised my dream that noodles can go into space."
