Turkey And Trimmings In Space

INTERNATIONAL SPACE STATION (AP) -- Christmas arrives at the international space station. The two Americans and one Russian aboard the station have been setting aside food pouches for a traditional holiday feast. They will have smoked turkey with cornbread dressing and candied yams.

Christmas dinner will be followed by another special treat in the days to come.

An unmanned Russian cargo ship is set to dock with the ISS early Wednesday morning. It's carrying fuel, oxygen, food and presents for the crew. Commander Peggy Whitson says the goodies include fixings for hamburgers with fresh tomatoes and onions.

Cosmonaut Yuri Malenchenko celebrated his 46th birthday aboard the station Saturday. And astronaut Dan Tani is looking forward to coming home to his two pre-school daughters as soon as next month. He's also dealing with last week's death of his 90-year-old mother in a suburban Chicago crash.
