    The famous glove was lost by Ed White on Gemini 4. Evidently, the glove was
    not cataloged. For that particular launch, the SSR only lists the Gemini 4
    capsule (1390, 65-43A) and the Titan 2 rocket (1391, 65-43B). A web page
    article I recently read about space junk notes that the glove re-entered "a
    few days later." Looks like the recent comments, quoted on SeeSat from a
    News email list, about a glove from a Gemini flight still being in orbit is
    off by about 35 years.
