NASA's Cygnus capsule arrived at the International Space Station last Friday bringing with it supplies and some goodies for the astronauts on board. They included meals enough for an Easter feast especially for those who wouldn't be able to celebrate with their families.
Currently, there are six astronauts at the ISS including Canadian astronaut David Saint-Jacques who was the one that caught the capsule and brought it in for everyone to share.
For Cygnus’ trip, NASA packed more than 800 meals for the International Space Station’s six astronauts, including holiday choices of pork chops with gravy, smoked turkey, potatoes au gratin, apricot cobbler, and lemon meringue pudding.
According to the CSA, some Canadian treats were also sent to the cosmonauts. Smoked salmon, maple cream cookies, and a bison chili that’s based on Saint-Jacques’ favorite family dish were also included in the Easter-themed shipment.
