Christmas in Space
Welcome back and Happy Holidays! This is the office door at Johnson Space Center, Honourable mention in the Christmas decorating contest!
In December 1968 the crew of Apollo 8 celebrated Christmas Eve while orbiting the Moon. On December 20, 2009 the 3-member (American, Russian and Japanese) crew of Expedition 22 lifted off for ISS. Continued occupation means that every year someone will celebrate Christmas in Space.
