Anniversary! On March 16, 1966, command pilot Neil Armstrong and pilot David Scott successfully docked their Gemini VIII spacecraft with the Agena target vehicle, the first-ever linking of two spacecraft together in Earth orbit. Obviously nobody was there to photograph this historic event — another reason why we need space artists!
