NASA Gemini Space Mission History
& Neil Armstrong DVD

Price: $14.97     SKU: A263     Qty:

The second U.S. manned space program was announced in January 1962. Its two-man crew gave it its name, Gemini, for the third constellation of the Zodiac and its twin stars, Castor and Pollux. Gemini involved 12 flights, including two unmanned flight tests of the equipment. Like Mercury's, its major objectives were clear-cut:

  • To subject man and equipment to space flight up to two weeks in duration.
  • To rendezvous and dock with orbiting vehicles and to maneuver the docked combination by using the target vehicle's propulsion system;
  • To perfect methods of entering the atmosphere and landing at a preselected point on land. Its goals were also met, with the exception of a land landing, which was cancelled in 1964.

The three films that make up the Gemini collection have a total run time of 1 hour 20 minutes.

The first film is "Legacy of Gemini." This film explores the legacy of the Gemini space flights and how the knowledge gathered during these flights led to the successful Apollo flights to the moon.
