From the brave astronauts to the technology that made it possible, author Carl R. Green explores the astounding GEMINI 4 mission. Any time an astronaut gets out of a vehicle while in space, it is called a spacewalk. A spacewalk is also called an EVA. EVA stands for extravehicular activity.

The first person to go on a spacewalk was Alexei Leonov. He was from Russia. The first spacewalk was on Ma It was 10 minutes long. The first American to go on a spacewalk. Gemini 4 was launched from Complex 19 at UTC and inserted into a x km Earth orbit at UTC.
