    About the Photo

    Full Title: Astronaut Ed White in space, tethered to Gemini 4 spaceship

    Year: 1965

    Event: The first walk in space

    Photographer: Astronaut James Mcdivitt

    Story behind the Image:

    Gemini 4 was the second manned space flight in NASA's Project Gemini, occurring in June 1965. It was the tenth manned American space flight. Astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White circled the Earth 66 times in four days, making it the first US flight to approach the five-day flight of the Soviet Vostok 5. The highlight of the mission was the first space walk by an American, during which White floated free outside the spacecraft, tethered to it, for approximately 20 minutes. Both of these accomplishments helped the United States overcome the Soviet Union's early lead in the Space Race.

    This image showing Edward White free floating was a cover of life in 1966, and has become one of Life’s most iconic photos.
