Buzz Aldrin achieved the first 5 hour world record spacewalk during this mission.
Part of his duties was to take photos of star clusters during the night passes traveling 17,500 mph circling the globe every 90 minutes! During the day passes Buzz said, “There wasn’t much to do as we orbited so I did some site seeing of the earth as we circled the globe. But at one point I thought, I wonder what would happen if I took a picture of myself. And voila! The first selfie in space!”.
Gemini XII marked a successful conclusion of the Gemini program, achieving the last of its goals by successfully demonstrating that astronauts can effectively work outside of spacecraft as well as docking and rendezvous maneuvers. This was instrumental in paving the way for the Apollo program to achieve its goal of landing a man on the Moon by the end of the 1960s.
