Gemini 3 was an historic flight, testing the new two-man maneuverable spacecraft. The crew performed the first orbital maneuvers in space and accomplished the first manned reentry where the spacecraft produced lift to actually change its touchdown point. All flown items in very fine condition; the tape holding the back to the frame has dried out and is loose- easily replaced.
Four+ years after this mission, John Young was presented with a very special limited edition 18K Gold Omega Speedmaster Professional in honor of his (then) three successful missions. This watch is also available in this auction as Lot 41154.
On the back panel of the shadowbox, Young has written: " All items except the patch flown on GT-3. John Young".
