When he was an astronaut, Gordon was very famous during his first few launches into space, but eventually, he grew old and was forgotten. Then he had to retire, but he appeared at the X-20 launch as a "Meet an Astronaut" attraction.
For one portion of the launch, Captain Gordon participated in the Meet an Astronaut event, and left his memorabilia and belongings on a table. Later, a Poptropican stole the Ginger Ale he had on the table and used it to cure the astronaut (who was supposed to find Salerno) of his nausea.
