WASHINGTON, April 10 (UPI) -- A declassified NASA transcript from the Apollo 10 mission in 1969 revealed astronauts had trouble with a floating piece of feces.

The 500-page transcript from the around-the-moon mission details a conversation among astronauts Tom Stafford, John Young and Gene Cernan about one of the more unsanitary pitfalls of the zero-gravity environment, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

"Give me a napkin, quick," Stafford said. "There's a turd floating through the air."

"I didn't do it," Young said. "It ain't one of mine."

"I don't think it's one of mine," Cernan said.

"Mine was a little more sticky than that," Stafford said. "Throw that away."

The poop talk eventually subsided until a second piece of waste was found.

"Here's another [expletive] turd. What's the matter with you guys?" Cernan demanded.
