A corned beef sandwich went to the space fifty years ago, on March 23, 1965, which was smuggled by an astronaut aboard the Gemini 3 probe. NASA pilot John Young smuggled the sandwich into the space. Commander pilot Gus Grissom was also there with Young on the mission. The mission was the first manned Gemini mission and second manned US space mission ever.
According to Space.com, when Grissom saw the sandwich in Young’s hands, he asked him from where he got it. Then Young told him that he brought the sandwich with him; and also said that he wants to taste it.
