DescriptionGemini 7 Flown Fliteline Gold Plated Medal, obtained by Astronaut Joseph P. Kerwin as a member of the Astronaut Flight Office. The 25 mm medal was flown aboard Gemini 7, which was a long duration flight, December 4-18, 1965, investigating the effects of a fortnight in space on the human body. The nearly fourteen days in space would double the length of time that anyone had been in space and would stand as the single longest spaceflight duration record for five years. Onboard Gemini 7 were Frank Borman and Jim Lovell.
The obverse of the medal shows a features an Olympic torch, symbolizing the marathon-like length of the mission. There is a small stylized image of a Gemini spacecraft and the Roman numeral VII. The reverse has the dates of the flight, the mission designation, and the names of the crew members. The reverse also has some discoloration due to packing residue. From the collection of Joseph P. Kerwin, M.D., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
