On Thursday, friends and families convene around tables across the United States to celebrate gratitude, tradition, and the consumption of copious amounts of comfort food.
One Thanksgiving party will literally look down upon them all, as the crew of the International Space Station (ISS) continues its longstanding tradition of observing the festive harvest holiday from orbit. This year’s menu includes irradiated smoked turkey, rehydratable cornbread dressing, green beans and mushrooms, broccoli au gratin, mashed potatoes, candied yams, sweet tea, and thermostabilized cherry blueberry cobbler for dessert.
“[Thanksgiving] is going to be a little different for us up here in space, but I’m going to try to make it as much like home as we can,” said ISS commander and NASA astronaut Shane Kimbrough, in a video posted Monday. All six members of ISS expedition 50 will share the feast, including fellow American astronaut Peggy Whitson, French astronaut Thomas Pesquet, and Russian cosmonauts Sergey Ryzhikov, Andrey Borisenko, and Oleg Novitskiy.
