ISS Crew Sends Holiday Greetings to All

Way above your head, circling the earth, six people are having the most out of this world Christmas of their lives.  Aboard the International Space Station, Expedition 26 Commander Scott Kelly of NASA and Flight Engineers Cady Coleman of NASA and Paolo Nespoli of the European Space Agency offer Christmas and New Year's greetings to all the people on Earth from the orbital outpost on December 21 as they flew 224 statute miles above us.

Kelly, Coleman and Nespoli are part of the six-person crew that includes Russian cosmonauts Dmitry Kondratyev, Alexander Kaleri and Oleg Skripochka. In the unlikely event that any of the crew read this, greetings from Kuriositas and its readers!
