Hello everybody!

My good wishes for a Happy Thanksgiving to all who are celebrating it today. Here is a story about what the astronauts on the International Space Station are eating.

Thanksgiving in Space
Many good foods are associated with a traditional American Thanksgiving dinner. But what do you suppose would be on the menu for Thanksgiving in space? Would you squeeze turkey paste out of a tube and get gelatin-covered dessert in cubes? Nope. Space food has got much better since the early days.

Another article for this week is the answer to a frequently-asked question about a good book for young readers interested in astronomy.

Exploring Stars and Planets - book review
Looking for an astronomy book for readers 8-14? Philip's has a brand new edition of Ian Ridpath's best seller. Clearly written and illustrated with up-to-date images, it's the story of the Solar System. But there are also glimpses into galaxies, exploding stars and the history of the Universe.

Recently released is a beautiful timelapse video of photographs taken from the International Space Station. See the Earth as astronauts see it. There is also a list of the places shown in the video it isn't always obvious what you're looking it. http://www.abc.net.au/news/2011-11-15/iss-space-station-video/3667230

That's all for now. Wishing you clear skies.
