Ed White makes the first U.S. spacewalk. Gemini 4 astronaut Ed White is shown here during his spacewalk extra-vehicular activity (EVA) as he passes over New Mexico. This was the first spacewalk by a U.S. astronaut. It lasted 23 minutes. White initially used the gas powered gun held in his hand. After the first three minutes the fuel ran out and White manuevered by twisting his body and pulling on the 8 meter long umbilical cord. The photographs were taken by commander James McDivitt.
