Gemini 10 launched on 18 July 1966, piloted by Lieutenant Commander John W. Young, USN. Gemini 10 completed 43 orbits at an altitude of 412.2 nautical miles and lasted 2 days, 22 hours, and 46 minutes. Like the two previous Gemini flights, Gemini 10 included rendezvous and docking with a separately launched Agena spacecraft. Additionally, this mission would be the first to include two spacewalks. Recovery was by an HS-3 helicopter from USS Guadalcanal (LPH-7).
