Description

    An orbital chart from America's first two-man space mission.

    Gemini 3 Flown Orbital Path Display Chart Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot John Young, Signed and Certified. A 26" x 7.25" color lithographed earth map glued around a 13" x 7.75" mat board with a removable translucent plastic overlay showing pre-printed orbit tracks, designed to allow the overlay to rotate around the map allowing the crew to find their position during this three-orbit flight. The map is entitled "Gemini Orbit Chart GOC-3 (GT-3)" and was published by the USAF Aeronautical Chart and Information Center in February 1965. On the verso, at lower right, are written the part and serial numbers: "CF55057-3 S/N S-1" in an unknown hand. Young has signed on the overlay: "Flown on GT-3/ John Young". Gemini 3 was the first two-man mission of the American space program and John Young was the first astronaut to fly that wasn't part of the original "Mercury Seven." A one-of-a-kind relic from this historic mission. Fine condition with some light soiling and corner damage.
