‘Float the salt please’ – dinner time on the space station

“When there are nine people aboard the International Space Station, it’s a bit of a full house. It’s been a solid, busy week since Andy, Sergei and Aidyn joined the rest of us. It’s not every day you get to work with such a unique crew comprised of good people from five different countries: Russia, USA, Denmark, Japan and Kazakhstan.”
