Description


Coca-Cola full can produced by the beverage company to be tested in space onboard the Space Shuttle Challenger STS-51F. A dispenser lever on the can is made of Teflon and stainless steel and is equipped with a trigger lot to prevent accidental discharge. This can was among a lot originally distributed to Coke and NASA officials. In 1985, Coca-Cola and Pepsi were launched into space aboard the Challenger. Both companies had designed special cans (officially the Carbonated Beverage Dispenser Evaluation payload) to test packaging and dispensing techniques for use in zero G conditions. The experiment was classified a failure by the shuttle crew, due to the lack of refrigeration and gravity. RRAuction COA.
