Most people go to their family for Thanksgiving. Others, however, simply can not attend meetings because they are in their debt, including the cosmonauts of the International Space Station.
It's been a tradition to celebrate this important holiday with the most important people in your life, and that means taking the time to work to share with them things to be thankful for. However, for specific professions, especially for astronauts, they have no choice but to stay and enjoy their special ways.

Three astronauts were not able to spend the holidays with their relatives, but that does not mean they are not preparing for it in space. In a video shared by the ISS on November 21 via Twitter, Expedition Commander 57 Alexander Gerst and NASA Flight Engineer Serena Aung-chancellor made the goal to greet everyone on Earth for Happy Thanksgiving.
The Duo, along with the Russian cosmonaut Sergey Prokopiev, should share a delicious dish that was sent in an advanced aspect, consisting of sweet, sweets and, of course, traditional turkey, although only Aung Chanceller has been watching Thanksgiving in the past . Gerst, German, said it was not the first time he had celebrated this special day.
"Thanksgiving is the time to spend with those you love, anyway, so we'll enjoy this meal together, but then we'll call our Earth-lovers," says Aung-chanceller.
Both the Auon Chancellor and Gerst had their holidays, leaving Prokopiev the only one to work during the holiday. Regular programming will return on Friday, which means the three will have a casual time, a chance to catch up to catch up with their families and friends.
One of the benefits of celebrating the Thanksgiving Day in the Universe? There will be more food for everyone. The best part? There are no washing dishes.
As far as these things sound exciting for everyone on earth, there is a reason why there are only three ISS astronauts on board. NASA's naval engineer Nick Hague and Russian astronaut Alexey Ovchinin had to be in orbit, but a failure in the space rocket forced them to return to Earth just a few minutes after they retired on October 11th.
In one interview, the Auñon-Chancellor admitted that as the team wanted the two cosmonauts in space, knowing that they were safe was of paramount importance.
Do you thaw your turkey? The crew of the space station is also preparing for Thanksgiving! Tomorrow, one American, European and Russian will celebrate together in space with their special dish.
