“It’s fun”, White reported, “I’m not coming in.”

[Caption] Astronaut Edward H. White II, pilot on the Gemini-Titan 4 space flight, is shown during his egress from the spacecraft. His face is covered by a shaded visor to protect him from the unfiltered rays of the sun. White became the first American Astronaut to walk in space. He remained outside the spacecraft for 21 minutes during the third revolution of the Gemini-4. He wears a specially designed space suit for the extravehicular activity. In his right hand (not shown) he carries a Hand-Held Self-Maneuvering Unit with which he controlled his movements while in space. He was attached to the spacecraft by a 25-ft umbilical line and a 23-ft tether lines, both wrapped together with gold tape to form one cord. He wears an emergency oxygen supply chest back. Astronaut James A. McDivitt is command pilot for the GT-4 mission. The mission was a four-day, 62 revolution flight, during which McDivitt and White performed a series of scientific and engineering experiments.
