Irradiated turkey and freeze-dried green beans are just a few things on the menu for astronauts celebrating Thanksgiving in space.

A NASA astronaut was showing off the traditional space menu online Wednesday morning. They said one of the biggest challenges to overcome for astronauts for Thanksgiving dinner in space is warm deserts.
