    Gemini 3 White Room Access Badge Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot John Young, Signed. A 2.5" x 3.875" laminated red badge with attached clip. On the front is printed "GEMINI Spacecraft White Room Access" with "GT-3", and "102" stamped. Young has signed it vertically along the right edge "John W. Young". The verso is blank. Gemini 3 was America's first two-man space mission and John Young was the first astronaut to fly who wasn't part of the original "Mercury Seven" group. The white room was atop the Titan launch vehicle at Pad 19, a sterile environment where the spacecraft was prepared for launch and where the astronauts entered the capsule prior to takeoff. A rare item. Excellent condition.

    Accompanying this lot are two 5" x 7" reprint photos: one of Young and Grissom in the white room prior to insertion, the other of McDonnell technicians at the final inspection of the GT-3 spacecraft in the white room.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
