The Christmas turkey arrives at the space station



The delivery of smoked turkey, fruit and other Christmas drinks arrived at the International Space Station after a little delay caused by a failure to communicate.

CardX Box SpaceX Dragon was pulled into the orbital lab three days after its launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The big space robotic arm was able to grab the card for the second attempt after having had a problem with the space station's communications network.

The dragon has everything the station's astronauts need for a Christmas dinner, including smoked turkey, green beans, candied sweets, cranberry sauce, and a fruit cake.

There are biscuits with biscuits and butter, with cherry pipes for decoration.

In addition to festive treatments, the capsule contains mice and worms for scientific experiments and over 2270 kilograms of station.

The space station is now home to six astronauts, but three will return to Earth before Christmas.
