International Space Station Astronauts' Thanksgiving Dinner - No Tang?

HOUSTON – Please pass the irradiated smoked turkey, thermostable yams and freeze-dried green beans. The International Space Station is stocked and ready for an out-of-this-world Thanksgiving feast.


The three station crew members, one American and two Russians, will enjoy a holiday dinner floating 220 miles above Earth. 

In addition to the traditional holiday favorites, albeit with a space-food flair, their menu will include NASA's own cornbread dressing, as well as home style potatoes and cranberries. And, along with the best view from any Thanksgiving table, cherry-blueberry cobbler is available for dessert.
