Apollo 9 - Schweickart On The Porch
Painting - Acrylic And Meteorite Dust On Canvas
On March 6 1969, Rusty Schweickart performed a 37-minute EVA to test out the spacesuit that were to be used for the moon walkers. What was important about this EVA, wrote Deke Slayton, was that the lunar pressure suit was completely self-contained" in effect its own spacecraft. In addition to the call names Gumdrop and Spider, NASA referred to Schweickart as "Red Rover" during the spacewalk.
Inspired by a photo from the NASA Archives.
