Magazine Pouch #11, 16mm, Gemini XII
- Zippered pouches like this one from the Gemini XII spacecraft allowed astronauts to secure their camera equipment. In the weightless and cramped confines of an orbiting spacecraft, small objects need secure locations so as not to hinder the work of the astronauts when not being used. NASA also uses Velcro on small items for short term attachment to the inside of the spacecraft.
- NASA transferred this pouch to the Museum as part of the Gemini XII spacecraft in 1968.
