Dutch Astronaut and his favorite cheese descend to earth
A while back we posted about Dutch astronaut Andre Kuipers, who requested cheese while aboard the International Space Station. So it's fitting that the same day Kuipers returned to Earth on July 1st, several hundred cubes of Old Amsterdam touched down in the Netherlands, complete with tiny parachutes.
On the morning of July 1, 2012, people in Hoek van Holland in the Netherlands were surprised when they saw hundreds of parachutes with cheese cubes attached to them landing on the beach. The cheese cubes seemed to be falling from the sky. The reason for this landing was the safe return to Earth of Dutch astronaut André Kuipers.
