    Preparing a holiday dinner is complicated enough at home. Imagine what it must be like to throw a feast in space. Luckily, times have changed and meals have come a long way from the first applesauce tubes that John Glenn dined on. Holiday meals now consist of favorites - turkey and cranberry sauce and lots of goodies that appeal to astronauts' sweet tooths. Technology has lead to new packaging and better methods for reconstituting food, making dining in space more appealing and fun.
