Overall, space exploration has given us some unbelievably historic moments. And all things considered, Amy Schumer geeking out over space ice cream is one of them! Ordinarily, she’s bringing down the house all by herself. But this time, a special guest joined her.

When Neil deGrasse Tyson is not busy shutting down sexist Twitter trolls — or blowing our minds with scientific facts — he’s showing us astronaut ice cream. Guess he needed a break from explaining what the heck leap years are and why we need them.

Who would have guessed that Neil deGrasse Tyson and Amy Schumer would make such a great pair?

Someone better call TLC, stat!

All in all, Amy Schumer geeking out over space ice cream is right up there with her greatest sketches on Inside Amy Schumer.  While the details surrounding this hang are pretty scarce, the new friendship these two formed seems to be real. We almost wish that someone transcribed this interaction. Of course, we can just watch the video Amy posted on Instagram until then.

After some research into astronaut ice cream, we have discovered what makes it so cool. Cool enough for Amy Schumer to look like a kid in the candy store because of it. Astronaut ice cream is freeze-dried regular ice cream. It doesn’t need to be refrigerated, either. Imagine never having to deal with melted ice cream! That’s the dream.

All things considered, Amy deserves a little ice cream break. She recently performed an impromptu set at the Comedy Cellar in NYC. She was joined by huge stars like Aziz Ansari, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, and Chris Rock, just to name a few. With work like that, we totally understand the need for a delicious treat.
