CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) – It will be a Thanksgiving a long way from home.
Turkey and football are on the menu tomorrow for the crew on the International Space Station.
NASA astronaut and station commander Shane Kimbrough will serve as the holiday chef.
He’ll warm up pouches of sliced smoked turkey, candied yams, and cherry and blueberry cobbler. He’ll also add water to the bags of freeze-dried cornbread dressing, green beans and mushrooms, and mashed potatoes.
Mission Control promises to beam up some live football games.
The crew of six includes another American, Peggy Whitson, a Frenchman and three Russians.
