DescriptionGemini 12 Flown Large-Size American Flag Signed by and from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Pilot James Lovell. A beautiful 18" x 12" silk American flag, signed on the lowest white stripe, "Flown on board Gemini 12 James Lovell". Gemini 12, the last mission of the Project, orbited the Earth fifty-nine times between November 11-15, 1966. Its objectives were to prove that an astronaut could work safely and easily outside the spacecraft, to perform scientific experiments, and to rendezvous and dock with an Agena target vehicle. Gemini 12 is the only spacecraft to travel through the umbra of a total solar eclipse, an event that Pilot Buzz Aldrin photographed. Excellent condition with several folds.
This lot includes a signed Letter of Authenticity from Lovell stating that: "[This item] was flown on board Gemini 12 spacecraft. Gemini 12 launched in November of 1966 was the tenth and final flight of the Gemini series, which bridged the Mercury and Apollo programs."
