i told him i wasn’t worth it;

Gemini V Mission Image - Tropical Storm, 08/27/1965

From the file unit: Gemini V, 08/21/1965 - 08/28/1965

Although the storm in this photo is not identified, the date coincides with the formation of Hurricane Betsy, one of the costliest storms of that time (nicknamed “Billion Dollar Betsy”), and which even forced Gemini V to adjust its mission schedule.
