Description

The historic Project Gemini, signed by each mission astronaut

Phenomenal color 10 x 20 print of the GT-5 capsule, the McDonnell-built spacecraft used for NASA's fifth Gemini mission, impressively signed in ink and felt tip by 40 legendary Gemini astronauts, flight directors, engineers, and other early NASA personnel members, including: Neil Armstrong, Gus Grissom, Buzz Aldrin, Michael Collins, John Young, Elliot See, Charles Bassett, Clifton Williams, Charles Conrad, Alan Bean, Gene Cernan (2), Dave Scott, Bill Anders, Wally Schirra, Deke Slayton, Tom Stafford, Jim McDivitt, Ed White II, Frank Borman, James Lovell, Gordon Cooper (2), Richard Gordon, Christopher Kraft, John Hodge, Gene Kranz, Glynn S. Lunney, Clifford Charlesworth (2), Charles Cicchetti, George Page, Charles A. Berry, Owen D. Coons, Arnold Aldrich, William E. Platt, Richard Glover, John Llewellyn, Charlie B. Parker, Bob Sheridan, Larry D. Armstrong, Charles S. Harlan, and Melvin F. Brooks. Matted and framed to an overall size of 13.5 x 23.75. In fine condition, with a small area of whiteout at the top edge, and fair-to-poor contrast to the Bean and Aldrin signatures. An outstanding Gemini-era print signed by a multitude of names both rare and iconic, which boasts all Gemini mission pilots, a total of seven moonwalkers, and an ensemble of tragic NASA heroes like Grissom, White, See, Bassett, and Williams. Originates from the personal collection of Manfred 'Dutch' von Ehrenfried, a Mercury, Gemini and Apollo Flight Controller, Apollo Pressure Suit Test Subject, NASA hi-altitude aircraft crew member, Mission Staff Engineer and Branch Chief from 1961-1971. Accompanied by two signed 8 x 10 photos, one of Manfred von Ehrenfried, and the other of John Hodge, a Mercury and Gemini Flight Director and later Director of theSpace Station Program Office at NASA in the 1980s.
