Check out these stunning pictures from Space as NASA celebrates 50 years of first Spacewalk

On June 3, 1965 in NASA's Gemini IV mission, two astronauts Ed White and Jim McDivitt attempted the first spacewalk. NASA released several images to celebrate its 50 years journey in the Space.

NASA prepared to launch its most ambitions flight – Gemini IV, during June 1965, two astronauts would not only stay in orbit four days, one would attempt America's first spacewalk. Lifting off from Cape Kennedy (now Cape Canaveral) Air Force Station on June 3, 1965, Gemini IV was the first flight to be followed by the mission control at the new Manned Spacecraft Center (MSC) in Houston. "This is the greatest experience, it's just tremendous," said astronaut Ed White as he spacewalked outside the Gemini IV spacecraft on June 3, 1965. (Source: NASA)

In this photograph of July 20, 1969, lunar landing was the culmination of a goal set eight years earlier by President John F. Kennedy during the peak of the Cold War. Astronaut Buzz Aldrin walks on the surface of the moon near the leg of the lunar module Eagle during the Apollo 11 mission. Mission commander Neil Armstrong took this photograph with a 70mm lunar surface camera. While astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin explored the Sea of Tranquility region of the moon, astronaut Michael Collins remained with the command and service modules in lunar orbit. (Source: NASA)

The Apollo 15 was launched on July 26, 1971, from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. The Apollo 15 lunar module pilot Jim Irwin loaded the lunar rover with tools and equipment in preparation for the first lunar spacewalk at the Hadley-Apennine landing site. The Lunar Module 'Falcon' is on the left in this image. (Source: NASA)

In this photograph of February 5, 1971, the Apollo 14 crew landed on the moon. The crew members were Captain Alan Bartlett Shepard, Jr. (USN), commander; Major Stuart Allen Roosa (USAF), command module pilot; and Commander Edgar Dean Mitchell (USN), lunar module pilot. In this photo, Captain Alan Bartlett Shepard stands by the Modular Equipment Transporter (MET). (Source: NASA)

In this photograph of April 25, 1990, taken by the crew member of the STS-31 space shuttle mission, the Hubble Space Telescope is suspended above shuttle Discovery's cargo bay. STS-31 was the tenth launch of the shuttle Discovery. To launch Hubble into an orbit that guaranteed longevity, Discovery soared to a record altitude of 600 km. (Source: NASA)

In this photograph of May 13, 1992, following the successful capture of the Intelsat VI satellite, three astronauts continue moving the 4.5 ton communications satellite into the space shuttle Endeavour's cargo bay. The STS-49 mission was the first flight of shuttle Endeavour and had set records for the first (and only, to date) spacewalk involving three astronauts; first shuttle mission to feature four spacewalks; first shuttle mission requiring three rendezvous with an orbiting spacecraft; first attachment of a live rocket motor to an orbiting satellite and first use of a drag chute during a shuttle landing.

Launched on October 7, 2002, Space Shuttle Mission STS-112 traveled to the International Space Station and its primary payloads were the S1 integrated truss segment (constructed at NASA Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Alabama) and the Crew and Equipment Translation Aid (CETA) Cart A. The CETA was the first of two human-powered carts that rode along the ISS railway, providing mobile work platforms for spacewalking astronauts. (Source: NASA)
