Edward H. White (above) made the United States’ first spacewalk during
the Gemini 4 mission. It was on the third orbit when White opened his
hatch and used the hand-held maneuvering oxygen-jet gun to push
himself out of the capsule. The EVA started over the Pacific Ocean
near Hawaii and lasted 23 minutes, ending over the Gulf of Mexico.
