Collins performed two EVAs totalling a little less than a hour and a half. (There was also a very short equipment dump.) The first was a stand up EVA, terminated after 49 minutes when both Collins and Young experienced severe eye irritation from an unidentified source. During the second EVA, Collins lost his camera and had difficulties due to a lack of hand holds. He did, however, successfully retrieve a micrometeorite experiment.
Gemini X is located at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center, Hutchinson, KS, where it is undergoing restoration.
