Creating a NASA patch and flying to the International Space Station is an incredible honor, but it has many victims. Not only do astronauts have to leave their friends and family for a long time, they also miss many things that are natural to most of us.
This is their current mission for NASA astronauts Christina Koch and Nick Hague. On July 4th the ISS was celebrated without fireworks. But that did not stop them from enjoying the day, and the two of them shared their Independence Day downtime with the public via Twitter.
"Sport with our red, white and blue at the @Space_Station!" The Hague tweeted . "Prepare for a" cookout "tonight with beef patties, corn, blueberry shakers and lemonade on the menu ̵
Hagues Tweet was accompanied by a photo of him and his NASA colleagues wearing red, white, and blue national flags in the background.
Cook fired with a nod to Philidelphia on her own greeting to the United States,
The ISS completes a full Earth orbit every one and a half hours, giving the crew endless opportunities to enjoy the view. Unfortunately, due to the distance, for those who on board, it is very difficult to see even the biggest firecrackers from their point of view.
The two sciences Officers have just completed Expedition 59 aboard the ISS, and three of their Space Station crew members returned to Earth recently. They are now waiting for the arrival of the next wave of astronauts and will take part in Expedition 60, which will last until October 3, 2019. The trio of new space station travelers is expected to arrive on July 20th.
