What astronauts will feast on this Thanksgiving

If you're dreading your aunt's terrible cooking this Thanksgiving, you can at least be thankful your meal isn't freeze-dried.

The six astronauts on board the International Space Station will get a Thanksgiving-themed dinner, according to Tech Times, but it leaves a lot to be desired. Zero-gravity crumbs are a no-go, so any form of bread is out.

They'll munch on freeze-dried, irradiated turkey with sides of yams, green beans, and mushrooms, also freeze-dried. There's dressing to top it off, which — you guessed it — is also freeze-dried.

At least there's dessert to wash it all down: thermostabilizied cherry-blueberry cobbler.
