Many good foods are associated with a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. But what do you suppose would be on the menu for Thanksgiving in space? Would you squeeze turkey paste out of a tube and get gelatin-covered dessert in cubes? Nope. Space food has come a long way since the early days.
Expedition 34 Commander Kevin Ford sends his greetings and thanks from the Space Station, and shows what's on the menu for Thanksgiving this year. Although his Russian crewmates Oleg Novitskiy and Evgeny Tarelkin don't usually celebrate Thanksgiving, everyone on the Space Station seems to be happy to celebrate each other's holidays. I'm all for that - any excuse for a party!
