    NASA Gemini-Era Space Food Pouch: Orange Drink. Most probably this rare, unconsumed, unflown space food leftover is from the Gemini project. Offered here is a 3.5" x 13.5" still-sealed plastic pouch with a label on the front stating: "ORANGE DRINK/ 5 oz. Water/ 2-5 minutes" along with a "WSD/14" stamp; on the verso is a label with the Serial No. "FG 451" as well as a piece of Velcro. In as separate attached pouch is a single germicide tablet. From the estate of a long-time NASA employee. Fine condition but not the contents are quite dark in color. The word "Tang" is not mentioned anywhere. Not for consumption, of course.

    Included with this lot is an opened foil pouch, 11.5" x 9.25", with two labels: "SERIAL NO./ FG658" and "6091/ WSD/14", and a piece of Velcro. This originally held several of these pouches and would have gone into space still sealed.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
