NASA astronauts Jasmin Moghbeli and Loral O’Hara, along with ESA (European Space Agency) astronaut Andreas Mogensen, as well as JAXA (Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency) astronaut Satoshi Furukawa share a Thanksgiving message from the International Space Station.



They also show off Thanksgiving dinner consisting of roast turkey, cranberry sauce, butternut squash, corn, and a cranberry apple dessert. No, this isn’t the hot meal that most are accustomed to, but rather pouches of pre-made food items. Some items in the past that astronauts enjoyed include sweet potatoes, green beans, macaroni & cheese, and jellied cranberry sauce for the roast turkey. If you’re wondering why most of the food is in pouches, the reason is to prevent it from floating away. Most packaging have Velcro strips on them so it can be attached to a table or tray.
