    Description

    Space flown coffee

    Apollo-Soyuz Test Project Flown "Coffee with Milk" Space Food Tube Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Docking Module Pilot Deke Slayton, with Kennedy Space Center Loan Paperwork and NASA Color Photo. A 1.5" diameter x 7" long sealed metal tube labeled in both languages "КОФЕ С МОЛОКОМ / Coffee with milk". On the verso is a tiny label, "DS-90-92" written in ink. This item was formerly part of an Apollo-Soyuz exhibition at the Kennedy Space Center Complex, loaned out from the Slayton family. Included is a "Release of Artifacts per Loan Agreement" document mentioning this item and also an illustrated "Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex Condition Report" detailing the condition of the item before it was returned to Bobbie Slayton. Also included is a 10" x 8" color photo of Tom Stafford and Deke Slayton during the mission holding similar tubes (appears to be Russian vodka). This tube is discolored and creased but still perfect for display. Flown space food is always rare and this is the first Heritage has offered from this mission (see accompanying lot for a "Table Bread" package from the same collection). Included is an Ultra-Pro display case for display.
