I love bunnies, however, these people who dress in Easter bunny costumes and take pictures with little kids are really disturbing… maybe not as much as the ones in my last post… but still… kind of like clowns, I guess…


happy easter

Jell-O: An Easter Treat in Space

On May 19, 1996, astronaut Shannon Lucid wrote “a letter home" from the Russian space station Mir, discussing an Easter treat that became a weekly tradition for Lucid and her cosmonaut space-mates:

Here it is, another Sunday on Mir!!! And how, you might ask, do I know that it’s Sunday? Easy!!! I have on my pink socks and Yuri, Yury, and I have just finished sharing a bag of Jell-O!!!

When light follows darkness every 45 minutes, it is important that I have simple ways of marking the passage of time. The pink socks were found on STS-76 and Kevin, the commander, said that they were obviously put on as a surprise for me, so I took them with me over to Mir and decided to wear them on Sundays.

And the Jell-O? It is the greatest improvement in spaceflight since my first flight over 10 years ago. When I found out that there was a refrigerator onboard Mir, I asked the food folks at JSC if they could put Jell-O in a drink bag. Once aboard Mir, we could just add hot water, put the bag in the refrigerator and, later, have a great treat. Well, the food folks did just that and sent a variety of flavors with me to try out. We tried the Jell-O first as a special treat for Easter. It was so great that we decided the Mir-21/ NASA-2 crew tradition would be to share a bag of Jell-O every Sunday night. (Every once in a while, Yuri will come up to me and say, “Isn’t today Sunday?” and I will say “No, it’s not. No Jell-O tonight!!!”)
