  • Astronauts enjoy Thanksgiving Dinner in Outer Space

The astronauts enjoyed a warm and hearty Thanksgiving dinner in the context of outer space. They were all on board the ISS.

A truly international group of astronauts celebrated Thanksgiving with zest and gusto aboard the ISS. They had a taste of rehydrated turkey and stuffing not to mention potatoes and other vegetables such as candied yams.

It was a time of destressing from the usual routine activities for the astronauts who enjoyed the holiday to the hilt. A photo of the astronauts reached earth and they are all shown making a toast with their food tube packs aboard the ISS.

The hearty and delicious meal ended with dessert which was cherry blueberry cobbler. This is the first time that the crew are enjoying the same things we earthlings take for granted in such a fine quality manner.

The previous food items that they have had to eat just could not match such things as apple pie, hamburgers and pizza which are staple American foods that make many a mouth water with anticipation.

After a day’s hard work, the astronauts all gathered around a table and ate their food celebrating the holiday that is Thanksgiving with verve and vigor.

There was a general air of camaraderie and brotherhood in the air as they all ate to their heart’s content. Happiness and bonhomie pervaded the atmosphere.

Memories of the home planet were reignited in their minds and they all were grateful for the good food they got to consume with such passion and genuine enjoyment.

One of them held up his pouch of turkey and said that it was about to be heated and then he would eat it with delight. Also every one of them looked forward to the dessert. The sugar fix just could not be missed.

Other items and comestibles that got ravenously devoured included candied yams, green beans, cornbread dressing and last but not least mashed potatoes, according to DailyMail.

This was all comfort food at its best. Also the astronauts got to view football games live thanks to mission control back home. The six members of the crew has been aboard the ISS since the end of October.

This mission will last till 20th April, 2017. Till then they have to make do with what they have. The ISS was constructed in 1998. Today it is a successful and burgeoning experiment in space exploration.
