    Description

    Gemini Program: Neil Armstrong's Personal NASA Gemini Group Achievement Award, Directly From The Armstrong Family Collection™, CAG Certified. A 13.5" x 10.5" (sight size) certificate, framed to an overall 15.25" x 12.25" (original frame). NASA presented this award at Washington, D.C., on November 22, 1966, to "The Gemini Astronaut Team/ Manned Spacecraft Center/ For successfully completing the specific objectives of the Gemini Program in proving/ that man can live in space for periods up to 14 days, perfecting rendezvous and/ docking techniques, demonstrating man's capabilities in extravehicular activity, landing a spacecraft with great precision, and executing important scientific experiments." It is signed in facsimile by James E. Webb and Robert C. Seamans Jr. to the right of the gold NASA seal and "Neil A. Armstrong" in calligraphy. The date of presentation was exactly one week after splashdown of the Gemini 12 (final) mission. An exclusive award as there were only sixteen men to fly on a Gemini mission. A fabulous display piece. Extremely fine. CAG 1002095-012. This lot will include an encapsulated CAG Photo Certificate with a Statement of Provenance signed by Neil Armstrong's sons, Rick and Mark.
