Lot Details
SCHIRRA'S FLOWN GTA-6 MISSION EMBLEM.
CARRIED ON THE FIRST MANNED RENDEZVOUS MISSION.
Flown GTA-6 cloth crew mission emblem taken on the flight by mission commander Wally Schirra, approximately 4 x 4 inches, hexagonal. Mounted between paragraphs on a Typed Letter Signed by WALLY SCHIRRA.

WALLY SCHIRRA'S signed provenance letter reads in part: "The GTA-6 or Gemini Titan Agena – 6 crew emblem displayed below was carried into space during December 15 and 16, 1965 on the Gemini 6 mission. I was flight commander.... GTA-6 was the original mission designation with a flight plan calling for our Gemini spacecraft to rendezvous and dock with an Agena target vehicle.... On October 25, 1965 the Atlas rocket worked fine, but the Agena's engine failed to ignite properly....
I decided to carry a few of our original mission emblems as a reminder of the efforts made by the NASA – Industry team that made this historic event possible.
