A SpaceX Dragon resupply spacecraft is carrying a lot more than just crew supplies, science experiments and cargo; it is carrying holiday treats and presents along for astronauts up in space.

The spacecraft blasted off at 3:37 pm IST on December 21 atop a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space centre in Florida as part of SpaceX’s 24th cargo resupply mission.

“Special delivery! Watch as @SpaceX#CRS24 Cargo Dragon spacecraft carrying @ISS_Research, food, and supplies launches to the @Space_Station” wrote NASA in a tweet.

The spacecraft will dock into the ISS on December 22, and remain there for about a month.

NASA also wrote that the space station crew will receive gifts and a holiday food delivery of roasted turkey, spicy green beans, smoked seafood, and fruit cake.
