Caption: First American space walk. Astronaut Edward H. White II floating in space during the Gemini IV space mission. White spent 21 minutes outside the spacecraft on 3rd June 1965, becoming the first American to walk in space. He was attached to the spacecraft by a tether and umbilical line (gold strand, bottom right corner) and carried an emergency oxygen supply (centre). A shaded visor protects him from the unfiltered rays of the sun. The Gemini IV mission was launched on 3rd June 1965 and lasted for 4 days, performing 62 revolutions of the Earth. During the flight, White and fellow pilot James A. McDivitt performed a series of scientific and engineering experiments.
