About Moon Soup:

It’s a spinach and mushroom soup that features over 18 secret herbs and spices. It was this dish (soup bowl) that caught the attention of Apollo astronaut Jim Irwin.  A frequent visitor to the restaurant, he was instrumental in getting the soup served at Kennedy’s training center. He also recommended the soup to be served on the Apollo 15 mission.

Well, long story short, the soup, along with Vichyssoise and Seafood Mushroom soups, were sent to NASA in Houston to undergo testing to make sure that it met their (NASA) nutritional requirements for astronauts. The soups passed and went into space with Colonel Irwin’s crew. The Romaine soup would make two additional trips on the Apollo 16 and the Apollo-Soyuz. Soon after, the soup earned the nickname, “Moon Soup.”

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
