Christmas turkey arrives at the space station



The delivery of smoked turkey milk, fruit cake and other Christmas stickers arrived at the International Space Station after a slight delay due to a communication failure.

The SpaceX Dragon capsule was pulled out of the circulatory lab three days after launch from Cape Canaveral, Florida.

The big space robotic arm of the space station was able to grab the cargo carrier on the second attempt after a problem with the space station communications network.

The dragon holds everything that astronauts need for Christmas dinner, including smoked turkey meat, green bean stew, candied jam, cranberry sauce and fruit cake.

There are also butter and butter biscuits, with decorating pipes.

Besides festive medicines, it contains mouse capsules and worms for scientific experiments and over 2270 kilograms of station equipment.

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