Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Gemini 6, the fifth manned flight of Americas two-man spacecraft, is captured in these original NASA documents.

Synopsis:

Without the ten successful manned Gemini missions NASA could not have accomplished Kennedy's seemingly impossible goal of landing a man on the moon in the 1960's.

Gemini 6 was the fifth manned flight of America's two-man spacecraft. Aboard were Commander Wally Schirra and rookie pilot Tom Stafford. Their original mission flight plan was to attempt the first ever docking and rendezvous in space, an essential step if the pilots flying Apollo would ever be able to meet up in orbit around the moon.

On December 15th 1965 ace pilot Schirra and rendezvous maestro Stafford closed to within a meter of Gemini 7 and America was one step closer to the moon.

Description:

System requirements: Windows 95, Pentium 90, 4x CDROM drive. Recommended: Web browser, Internet access.
