Description

Astronauts Neil Armstrong and David R Scott sit with their spacecraft hatches open while awaiting the arrival of the recovery ship, the USS Leonard F Mason, after the successful completion of their Gemini 8 mission. They're assisted by rescue personnel. The overhead view shows the Gemini 8 spacecraft with the yellow flotation collar attached to stabilise the spacecraft in choppy seas. The green marker dye is highly visible from the air and is used as a locating aid. Neil Armstrong was the first man to walk on the moon in 1969.
