This is an original NASA photograph with credit and photo identification number printed on the margin.

This photograph was taken by former NASA astronaut and engineer James McDivitt. Now retired, McDivitt’s vast list of accomplishments as an astronaut include acting as command pilot for Gemini 4 in 1965 and as commander of Apollo 9 for its launch in 1969.

McDivitt's photo shows Edward White at the very moment he becomes the first American to step outside of his spacecraft and float in zero gravity during the Gemini 4 mission. White was able to stay connected to the craft by a 25 foot line and a 23 foot tether, and in his right hand is a Hand Held Self Maneuvering Unit, which he used to control movement in the weightless environment. The gold plated visor of his helmet protected him from the sun’s unfiltered rays.
