50 years ago: Apollo 10 takes an unplanned spin above the lunar surface – and sh!t gets sweary

If you ever get the chance go and take a look at a Gemini capsule. Lovell & Borman spent almost 14 days cooped up in one of those, utterly beyond belief. At least they had the coolest space suits probably ever.

Mercury capsules were also small but they were designed for flights lasting hours rather than days.
