As they talk about how the epidemic has changed lives, they talk about how they pay homage to the human spirit and celebrate Christmas, showing off the gifts they received through special childbirth.
Although the crew took a day off, they insisted that the mission control team at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston work round-the-clock, working all day during the holiday break and making special noises.
