[thanksgiving] and the space shuttle

The Thanksgiving feast shuttle astronauts will eat in space is displayed Thursday, Nov. 20, 2008 at Johnson Space Center in Houston. Clockwise from upper left: green beans and mushrooms, candied yams, cranapple dessert, cornbread stuffing and smoked turkey. (AP Photo/Pat Sullivan)

Thanksgiving for the astronauts is a little different. The food needs water injections first, before heating and then the crew floats, presumably strapped to the seats, with fire extinguishers at the ready and other emergency equipment.

I'm interested in what the sole Russian there thinks of it all. His big holiday is New Year.

It doesn't look very appetising!

Think I'd prefer the earth bound version.
