'Jasmine Moghbeli' is part of the 'Expedition 70' team present on the ISS. Along with him, three more astronauts are also seen in the picture, who also participated in the festival. They are all wearing Christmas hats. Food items are visible on the table.

The International Space Station is a lab 400 kilometers above the earth, where a team of scientists is always stationed. Many experiments are conducted there. The ISS passes over the entire Earth and covers many countries. American space agency NASA wants to deorbit the ISS by the year 2030, that is, it will be safely dropped on Earth.
