While the U.S. sat down for Thanksgiving yesterday, SpaceX’s Crew 3 invited their cosmonaut colleagues to an out of this world Thanksgiving meal. After a full day of work, they got together to enjoy a meal of crab, roasted turkey, stuffing, cobbler and more! The all the food on the ISS dehydrated, so all they have to do is add water and wait (they say it’s pretty good too). Crew 3’s Pilot, Tom Marshburn, tells us that a major theme of their expedition is “those things that brings us together” and Thanksgiving is a great time to bring the international crew together!
