Ed White became the first American to go on a spacewalk – which lasted 23 minutes – in June of 1965. He “floated and maneuvered himself around the craft while logging 6,500 miles during his orbital stroll; White was attached to the spacecraft by a 25-foot umbilical line and a 23-foot tether line, both wrapped in gold tape to form one cord.”
The visor of his helmet is gold-plated to protect him from the unfiltered rays of the sun and his suit was pressurised with oxygen.
