Uh obviously the two most important entries on this list are:
10. A CORNED BEEF SANDWICH
Astronaut John Young smuggled a corned beef sandwich on board the Gemini 3 in 1965. The following exchange was recorded:
Gus Grissom: What is it?
Young: Corn beef sandwich
Grissom: Where did that come from?
Young: I brought it with me. Let’s see how it tastes. Smells, doesn’t it?
The entire incident lasted 30 seconds, with the sandwich only being consumed for 10 of those seconds, before being put back away inside Young’s flight suit.
While legend has it that Yuri Gagarin was accompanied by a homemade salami sandwich in 1961, the Russians had a specialized vacuum kit so they could clean up after eating to prevent any clogging of shuttle equipment. The Americans were just supposed to consume food from tubes, so Young was putting himself somewhat at risk for the five hour mission. The astronaut got a stern talking to; he later landed on the moon during the Apollo 16 mission.
Unlike astronauts, Soviet cosmonauts went into space locked and loaded, carrying atriple barrel TP-82 capable of 40 gauge shotgun rounds. The heavy duty big boy weapon was deemed necessary after 1965, when cosmonauts landed on Earth stranded in the Ural Mountains and needed to keep wolves from making them dinner. In 2006, however, the TP-82s were replaced with your standard semi-automatic.
