It may not be the original suit-up trailer, but on Monday (July 21) the Gemini 12 crew of James Lovell and Buzz Aldrin re-staged a walkout, exiting the newly-renamed Neil Armstrong Operations and Checkout Building at NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Great pictures! Must have been a great thrill to witness this event.

The picture with Mike Collins exiting the facility - is that Buzz Aldrin's daughter in the foreground?

That's great. All that was missing is "The End" stuck to their backs.
