Gemini 11

Charles "Pete" Conrad and Richard Gordon refined rendezvous maneuvers by docking with their Agena target on their first orbit on September 12, 1966. Gordon performed more EVA, including attaching a tether to the Gemini spacecraft and the Agena target for station keeping and 'artificial gravity' experiments. After 44 revolutions of the Earth, they splashed down in the Atlantic on September 15.
