M&M'S Brand Commemorates 30-Year Relationship With NASA By
Honoring Final Mission Of Space Shuttle Atlantis
In conjunction with the final space shuttle launch last
Friday, Mars Chocolate North America announced its M&M'S Brand
is commemorating the final mission by providing personalized
M&M'S for the crew, as well as NASA personnel at both launch
control Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral and mission control
at Johnson Space Center in Houston.
M&M'S have been a part of every space shuttle mission since
Columbia first launched on April 12, 1981. M&M'S are
included in NASA's space food system, as well as featured on the
International Space Station (ISS) menu.
"We've been honored to fly on more than 130 missions with
hundreds of American heroes over the last three decades," said
Debra A. Sandler, chief consumer officer, Mars Chocolate North
America. "It's bittersweet to see this program, which has inspired
millions to reach for the stars, come to an end, but we wish the
crew of Atlantis a safe and successful mission."
The commemorative M&M'S feature NASA colors (red, silver and
blue) and include the launch date and a space shuttle graphic. In
addition, the four astronauts scheduled to serve on the final
mission of Space Shuttle Atlantis will receive personalized
M&M'S with their names on them.
