The Gemini astronauts also took some of the most memorable photos in NASA history. You’d think we would have seen them all by now.

Ed note: Check out our friends at Air & Space for more stunning photos from the Gemini mission.
Hello, babies. Welcome to Earth. It’s hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It’s round and wet and crowded. At the outside, babies, you’ve got about a hundred years here. There’s only one rule that I know of, babies—God damn it, you’ve got to be kind.Kurt Vonnegut, God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater
