Brigadier General James A. McDivitt
Did You Know?
On Apollo 9 he was the command module pilot and flew with Dave Scott
and Russell Schweickart
in earth orbit. In ten days, the astronauts tested the lunar module, separated and re-docked the spacecrafts and McDivitt performed an EVA between the two spacecraft without any securing tether. The nickname for the command module was "Gumdrop" and for the lunar module it was "Spider.".
