DescriptionGemini 10 Flown Fliteline Silver-colored Medallion, from the collection of astronaut Jack Lousma. 25mm, with the mission name and dates engraved on the reverse, "Gemini 10 / July 18-21 / 1966". This medallion was flown with crew members Jack W. Young and Michael Collins aboard Gemini 10 during July 18-21, 1966.
The design includes the Roman numeral "X" and the orbits of the Gemini and the Agena target vehicle, with the name "Young" above and the name "Collins" below. After the two astronauts docked with their Agena vehicle in low orbit, they flew higher so Collins could spacewalk over to the drifting Agena left behind by the aborted Gemini 8 mission. This maneuver made Collins the first person to connect with another spacecraft in orbit.
This medallion comes complete with a handwritten Letter of Certification from Jack Lousma. From the personal collection of Jack Lousma.
