“Spacemen” Like Steaks Too!

I came across this article about astronaut John Glenn hosting Russian Cosmonaut Gherman Titov at his home for an impromptu cookout in 1962.  The headline has me in stitches:

“Spacemen Enjoy Cook-Out Despite Blackened Steaks”

Apparently, Mr. Glenn is a better astronaut than grillmaster.

It’s always fun to take a peek back in time. But what I realized is that at the core, nothing much has changed.

Check out the article here and take your own trip back in time.

Thanks for your service, Mr. Glenn! We’ll cook you a steak that is a little less well done any time!
