Flown metal fragment from the Gemini-Titan 10 first stage booster, approximately 1.5 x .5, affixed to a 7.5 x 10 Air Force Space Museum sheet presented to Thomas A. Lane. The sheet features an image of the GT-10 rocket launch, background information on the Gemini-Titan II Air Force Launch Vehicle, and states that the fragment “was recovered down the Air Force Eastern Test Range when [the first stage booster] separated on schedule 2 1/2 minutes after launch.” In fine condition, with a mounting strip to top back edge. As a fragment bestowed to an important figure during the flagship days of NASA, this artifact represents an especially appealing piece of space history, and only the second time that we have offered a fragment from a Gemini-Titan booster.
