Digitized Photos from Gemini

From 1965 to 1966 NASA flew Project Gemini. The Gemini test bed was designed to test hardware the astronauts would used to get to the moon back again. Several images from that period were chosen by the Smithsonian Air and Space museum for display. This photo and several others were chosen from Arizona State University's March To The Moon site. On chosen was the iconic photo of Ed White, taking the first American space walk. White died tragically in the Apollo 1 incident with his two other crew menbers Chaffee and Grissom.
