Title: Gemini 9-A spacecraft touches down in the Atlantic at end of mission
Description:
Gemini 9-A space flight is concluded as the Gemini 9 spacecraft touches
down  in the Atlantic. In this view its parachute is still deployed as the 
spacecraft hits the water (34117); Astronauts Thomas Stafford (right) and 
Eugene Cernan wave to the crowd aboard the aircraft carrier U.S.S. Wasp as 
they emerge from their Gemini 9 capsule. John C. Stonesifer (far right),
with  the Manned Spacecraft Center's Landing and Recovery Division, was on
board to  greet the astronauts (34118).
