Astronaut gets special ice cream delivery for 50th birthday
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — A space station astronaut is celebrating her 50th birthday with the coolest present ever: a supply ship bearing ice cream and other treats.
SpaceX's latest cargo delivery showed up Monday at the International Space Station after a day in transit.
NASA astronaut Megan McArthur says no one ever sent her a spaceship for her birthday before.
Launched from Florida on Sunday, the capsule contains lemons, cherry tomatoes, avocados and ice cream for McArthur and her six crewmates, along with a couple tons of research and other gear.
