Launched on June 3, 1965, the Gemini 4 mission had numerous scientific objectives, including evaluating the effects of a four-day flight on a spacecraft and its systems. The mission is especially remembered for the first American spacewalk, a milestone achieved by astronaut Edward White, and photographed by command pilot James McDivitt using a 35-mm camera. White walked in space for 22 minutes.
