On March 23, 1965 … Gus Grissom and John Young blasted-off into space on the Gemini III capsule.
One of their objectives was to determine how astronauts could eat … ‘mess-free’ during space missions.
Apparently … the hazards of crumbs in space are substantial … as they can drift through the cabin and lodge themselves inside critical instrument panels. As such … the food on the Gemini III was humdrum … to say the least … consisting of squeezy tubes and small, plastic packages.
Unbeknownst to Grissom … one of John Young’s colleagues had stopped at a local deli to pick-up a Corned Beef on Rye. 2 hours into the mission … Young pulled the sandwich from his pocket … and handed it to Grissom.
After the first bite … they soon realized the resulting crumbs were not favourable in zero-gravity conditions! Needless to say, neither NASA nor Congress were amused. Young was severely reprimanded … and extensive regulations were put in place for future missions!
