    Tang with vodka. That's what the cosmonauts drink.

    To better prepare themselves against the rigors of living on Mars.
    There is something fascinating about science. One gets such wholesale returns of conjecture out of such a trifling investment of fact.

    One of the astronauts, while on the moon, had an issue with Tang in his helmet and used an expletive on-air.

    Without checking fully, IIRC, that may have been Charlie. I emailed him back a couple of years ago asking the exact problem and he said there was a leak in the LCG that caused the Tang.

    The Space Review had a nice article on a recent book:

    As per the article, many were critical. Thankfully, since there was no internet then, the Saturn program never came under assault the way NASA plans are today.

    Mmmm...the problem wasn't with Tang in his suit but olfactory output brought on by the beverage. I can't quote the text of the transcript since it would introduce more asterisks. But you may read it here:
