    Flown on the first full day's length manned space mission

    Vostok 2 Flown Food Tubes Signed by and from the Collection of Cosmonaut Gherman Titov. Two metal tubes of 2.25" x 6.25", one labeled in white: "СОК КРЫЖОВНИКОВЫЙ" (Gooseberry Juice); the other is labeled in red:" СОК ЧЕРНОСМОРОЛИОВЫЙ" (Blackberry Juice). These were taken onboard and consumed during Titov's landmark mission, August 6-7, 1961. This was the first time a human spent an entire 24-hour period away from the surface of the earth. His seventeen-orbit journey would not be surpassed by an American astronaut for twenty-one months (Gordon Cooper, May 15-16, 1963). Titov has signed both tubes on their labels in black ink. Crinkled from use, labels worn, fine overall.
