    More about the special suit designed for extravehicular activity 
    White exits the spacecraft and performs the first American space walk
    Attached to a tether, White uses a Hand-Held Maneuvering Unit (commonly known as a "zip gun") to control his movement in open space
    The extravehicular activity lasted approximately 20 minutes
