1966 Anglo Confectionery : Space Bubble Gum

The Space card series was released in 1966 by Anglo Confectionery Ltd. of Halifax, England. Each three-pence wax pack included a stick of Anglo Bubbly bubble gum. The 66-card Space series was compiled and authored by L.J. Carter, a Fellow of The British Interplanetary Society. Each card measures 2.5 x 3.5 inches.

The prime crew of Gemini 4 are pictured on card #21, "The Astronauts." Command Pilot James McDivitt and Pilot Edward White are seen preparing to board Gemini-Titan 4 at Cape Kennedy on June 3, 1965.

The recovery of Gemini SC8 is depicted on card #34, "Recovery–3." The illustration is based on a photograph of Command Pilot Neil Armstrong and Pilot David Scott after splash down on March 17, 1966.

On March 16, 1966, at 23:14 UTC, Gemini 8 performed the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit. The Agena Target Vehicle malfunctioned and began to tumble. The spacecraft was undocked and Armstrong regained control by engaging the Reentry Control System (RCS) thrusters. The mission was aborted and the crew made an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean, about 500 miles east of Okinawa, Japan.
