NASA selected Gordon as an astronaut in 1963. He made his first space flight as Pilot on the three-day Gemini XI Mission, launched September 12th, 1966. He and Commander Charles Conrad, Jr. tracked down and docked with an Agena satellite. Gordon left the spacecraft for a planned 115-minute space walk, but he had to cut it short after 44 minutes because of difficulty maintaining his position in weightlessness without handholds or foot restraints, a valuable lesson for later space walkers. They used the Agena engine to rocket to a then-record altitude of 850 miles.

This framed autographed photo and patch from Richard "Dick" Gordon, Pilot of Gemini XI, is a unique collectible. Certificate of Authenticity is included.
