From Collectspace: “Astronauts (left to right) Tom Stafford, Jim Lovell (behind Stafford), Deke Slayton, Gene Cernan and Buzz Aldrin watch the successful launch of the Surveyor-1 spacecraft by an Atlas-Centaur launch vehicle on May 30, 1966. Stafford and Cernan were prime crew for Gemini-9 and Lovell and Aldrin were their backups. They were preparing to be launched the following day, but that attempt was scrubbed and launch was postponed until June 3, 1966. Surveyor-1 made a soft landing on the moon on June 2.”

The launch on May 31st was scrubbed because there weren’t enough people squinting at it.

Gene and Buzz.

Thanks to them, I get this Dad Vibe from Slayton. “If you two don’t stop fighting, we are turning this car around and NOT WATCHING THE LAUNCH TODAY.”

Tom is doing his best to keep Gene in check but eventually Gene stomps on Buzz’s foot and has to be sent to Time Out.
