    Gemini 10 Flown "Agena Commands" Cue Card with "Geostationary Satellite Antenna Pointing Guide" Directly from the John W. Young Collection, Signed and Certified. A 3" x 4.75" double-sided thick card with the following printed at top: "GTA-6-5002/ Agena Commands (Astro)/ Lt. Cdr. John W. Young". He has signed in that area in black felt tip: "Flown/ John W. Young". The card lists four groups of Command Titles with On and Off codes in the following sections: "TM/ TRACKING", "TDA" (both front), "GUIDANCE", and "PROPULSION" (on verso). Young was the backup pilot for the Gemini 6 mission; we assume that he trained for that using this card and then took it with him on the Gemini 10 mission. It is in a plastic bag sealed with a piece of tape with "Gemini X" written on it.

    Found with this in his archives was the second item which is not certified as flown in any manner- a 10" x 3.75" plastic slide calculator made by Hughes. The clear slide over the Mercator projection world map gives detailed information about: "Azimuth Angle to Satellite (Degrees), "Elevation Angle to Satellite (Degrees), and "Subsatellite Longitude". Both fine.
