Jingle Bells First Song Played In Space.

Ian O'Neill at
2-4157&l=020-a0f&t=c> Discovery News (12/14) wrote on how Gemini 6
astronauts Walter Schirra and Thomas Stafford, after completing the
rendezvous with the Gemini 7 spacecraft, reported a "UFO Santa" sighting and
played Jingle Bells. The two "had smuggled a harmonica and miniature sleigh
bells onto the spacecraft especially for this moment." O'Neill noted, "The
instruments have gone down in history as being the first instruments played
in space and Schirra and Stafford's high jinx became the first musical
rendition to be played in orbit."
