Pouch, Gemini 10
- Gemini 10 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 10 made a successful rendezvous and docking with the Agena 10 target. After undocking with Agena 10, the Gemini crew rendezvoused with Agena 8 without the use of radar. During the second of two EVA's, Collins used a hand-held maneuvering unit to fly to Agena 8, where he recovered a scientific package. Gemini 10 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.
