Overshadowed by the Moon landing later that year, 1969 also featured poop in space. Deep into a 500-page declassified transcript of the Apollo 10 around-the-moon mission, astronauts complain about an unsightly UFO inside the spacecraft, reports the New York Daily News. “Give me a napkin, quick,” Commander Tom Stafford says. “There’s a turd floating through the air. I didn’t do it, Command module pilot John Young responds. It ain’t one of mine. The conversation was recorded in June 1969, a month before Neil Armstrong walked on the Moon during the Apollo 11 mission.
