Packing for Space


Nine weird things that flew on the Space Shuttles: cans of Coke & Pepsi or officially the Carbonated Beverage Dispenser Evaluation payload, the New York Mets’ home plate from Shea now on display at Citi Field, dirt from Yankee Stadium, NASCAR starter flags, a Buzz Lightyear action figure, one of Luke Skywalker’s lightsabers, some of Gene Roddenberry’s ashes (also flown on commercial space flight), several sports jerseys including a yellow Tour de France jersey, and a metal cargo tag from the Jamestown colony (1607). The final space shuttle flight is scheduled for July 8th.
