Gemini XII launches 1966

James Lovell and Buzz Aldrin blasted off in Gemini XII November 11, 1966, the final mission of the Gemini project.  Aldrin performed three EVA's, proving that a person could work effectively outside the spacecraft.  The success of  the mission paved the way for the Apollo mission.

And they got to observe a solar eclipse from space.  How cool is that!?
