International Space Station Celebrates Holiday in Style

Christmas comes but once a year, on Earth and in Space.
The crew of the International Space Station, permanently manned for more than five years now, will celebrate the holiday with a decent meal and a good night's sleep.
Christmas in Space is nothing new for NASA astronauts. Since 1968 they have devised ways to celebrate with Yuletide carols, turkey dinners and even a gift exchange or two.
Just one more sign of humanity making itself comfortable in a vacuum.
