Walk in space (1965)

After Mercury had proven that man could live and work in space, Gemini spacecraft were designed by McDonnell under NASA leadership to master the orbital environment and test techniques that would allow man to go to the moon. Concepts developed during the Gemini program, such as the first rendezvous in space during the flights of Gemini 7 and 6 on December 15, 1965, would be the foundation for manned spaceflight in Earth orbit and beyond for decades to come. The world thrilled with Ed White, as he walked in space for 5,000 miles across the sky and told the world all the while of his experience.
