Tang is an orange fruit-flavored drink, originally formulated by General Foods Corporation scientist William A. Mitchell in 1957. It was first marketed in powdered form in 1959. Tang was famously utilized in some early NASA manned space flights. In 1962, when Mercury astronaut John Glenn conducted eating experiments in orbit, Tang was selected for the menu, and it was also used during some Gemini flights. Sales of Tang were poor until NASA used it on John Glenn's Mercury flight and the subsequent Gemini missions. Since then, it was closely associated with the U.S. manned spaceflight program, leading to the misconception that Tang was invented for the space program. Presented here is an early Instant Tang orange breakfast juice drink mix glass jar.
