There you are at home, chowing down on your Thanksgiving feast of turkey and mashed potatoes. Meanwhile, folks high above you are experiencing the holiday in a decidedly different way.
We're talking about the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.
In a new NASA video, released in advance of the holiday, ISS astronauts Rick Mastracchio and Mike Hopkins say they'll be savoring some pretty traditional Thanksgiving fare--including turkey, green beans, potatoes, and cherry-blueberry cobbler. Only the beans are freeze-dried and the yams are thermostabilized--and just about everything comes from a pouch.
OK, so maybe Thanksgiving in space isn't as tasty as Thanksgiving here on Earth. Then again, it's hard to beat the view from the ISS.
