As Gemini 4 orbited high above Hawaii, he left the spacecraft ... he swam over California, Mexico, and Texas, toward Bermuda ... The EVA [extravehicular activity] time was almost over, but White was euphoric, and he didn’t want to stop his above-earth swim. It was, he said, “the saddest moment of my life.” But he was finally persuaded by McDivitt and the ground communicators to return to Gemini 4 before it entered darkness.
–Neil McAleer, The Omni Space Almanac.
Edward H. White II
A pioneer of space exploration and considered to be the most “physically fit” (Primary Mars) astronaut of the time, Gemini 4 pilot Edward White II “took the first step” (Mars) in space, when on June 1965, he became the world’s first so-called “self-propelled” (Mars) astronaut. (The Russians had already walked in space, so the Americans, not to be outdone, provided him with a gadget that supposedly “propelled” him as he walked.)
Edward White was born in a Primary Location in Fort Sam Houston, Texas, several degrees east of his Primary Mars, which passes over westernmost Texas in a vertical, Midheaven position. Primary Mars was located about ten degrees west of the new Mission Control Center in Houston, Texas (95W05; 29N34), which became the space program’s nerve center for the first time during his Gemini 4 flight.
White’s Secondary Mercury is situated precisely above Cape Canaveral, Florida (28N29; 80W35), where the Gemini 4 was launched. Therefore, his Primary Mars and Secondary Mercury were in proximity to the space program’s two most significant locations: Houston and Cape Canaveral. (His Secondary Venus curves southeast of Florida and, with Secondary Mercury to the north, frames the entire state in a Transcendental Midpoint-Field.)
About one-third of White’s twenty-minute space walk occurred within a wide Transcendental Midpoint-Field formed between his Primary Mars and his Secondary Mercury-Venus: an area extending from the central USA (Primary Mars) to the eastern seaboard.
