Views from NASA Gemini spacecraft maneuvering close to Agena vehicle in space. A dacron tether attaching a Gemini craft to the Agena space vehicle. The tether held taut by the differential gravitational pull on the two space vehicles (Agena being closer to earth). Astronaut Ed White, performing the first extra vehicular activity (space walk) during the Gemini IV mission. His overglove is seen floating past him. He performs work in space using special tools. Views of other astronauts having difficulties during subsequent space walks. Astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin, pilot of Gemini XII, performs a series of tasks during a space walk test, proving the value of rest breaks, tethers, and handholds to facilitate such work in the weightlessness of space. He removes a hatch, that flies away. He tightens bolts.
