Pouch, Stowage, Gemini
- Gemini X was launched on July 18, 1966, for a 3-day mission. Commander John Young and pilot Michael Collins orbited the Earth 43 times. On the third orbit, Gemini X made a successful rendezvous and docking with the Agena X target. After undocking with Agena X, the Gemini crew rendezvoused with Agena VIII without the use of radar. During the second of two EVA's, Collins used a hand-held maneuvering unit to fly to Agena VIII, where he recovered a scientific package. Gemini X marked the first flight to rendezvous with two different target vehicles.
- This pouch was removed from the spacecraft after flight and was stored at the spacecraft manufacturer, McDonnell Aircraft Corporation. In 1968 it was sent to the Smithsonian with a large number of Gemini parts.
