Thanksgiving in Space Means Turkey, Work and Football for Astronauts

Share this

Astronauts may not be able to raise turkeys in the International Space Station (ISS), but that doesn’t stop the spacefarers from having a traditional Thanksgiving dinner!

The ISS Expedition 53 crew will enjoy a specially prepared meal together this Thanksgiving (Nov. 23). Only three of the six crewmembers are from the United States, but everyone will get together to take part in this U.S. tradition. On the menu: turkey, mashed potatoes, corn bread dressing and candied yams.
