Astronaut Pesquet ISS congratulates Greece on National Day

Space calls Greece. French astronaut Thomas Pesquet from the International Space Station congratulated Greece on the National Day, March 25. With a tweet.

Pesquet posted also a second tweet in French.

tranlated by bing: “This time day: Athens, the capital of the Greece, and the Acropolis, cradle of Western culture. She still has the trappings of 🇬🇷 ”

No idea what this means. And i have no idea how the astronauts know the national day of a country. I suppose, they have a calendar or something.

Thomas Pesquet, 39, is a European Space Agency astronaut of French nationality. He is currently on a six-month mission to the International Space Station. Thomas is serving as a flight engineer for Expeditions 50 and 51, launched in November 2016 and returning in May 2017. He previously worked as an aerospace engineer, and is also an airline pilot for Air France.

Now Greeks await for the International Space Station to wish them “Happy Easter” with a huge bunny flying over Greece – or an red Easter egg:)
