March 23, 1965:
Gus Grissom and John Young lift off in Gemini 3.
It was the first manned mission of the Gemini program, the first mission to carry more than one American astronaut, and the final space flight directed from the Cape Kennedy Air Force Base. Gemini 3 made three orbits of the Earth in just under five hours.
