Hi Abdul,

A few months back I mentioned these five pocket mice in a collectSPACE forum with a question for the new book on animals in space that Chris Dubbs and I are currently writing. I recalled they'd been given pet names and was directed by a respondent to an old interview with Gene Cernan in the defunct "Space Flight News" magazine, in which he said they were called Fe, Fi, Fo, Fum and Phooey.
