While we stretch our legs and enjoy a filling Thanksgiving dinner here on earth, our friends at NASA aren’t able to do the same.

The astronauts at the International Space Station couldn’t cook a whole turkey so they improvised.

They made freeze-dried smoked turkey, candied yams, cornbread dressing and many other classic holiday favorites.
