Food, Glorious Earth-Derived Food!

September 11, 2014

According to a piece in the Daily Mail, "A NASA astronaut and two Russian cosmonauts who have orbited earth more than 2,700 times have touched down on stable ground to a rapturous welcoming party - and watermelons.

Former station commander Steve Swanson and cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Oleg Artemyev completed their six month stay aboard the International Space Station (ISS) yesterday.

And upon exiting their descent capsule in Kazakhstan, their colleagues greeted them with apples and watermelons - a craving of the astronauts’ which they hoped would help them re-hydrate upon landing."
