Gemini Goals

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.

Gemini 7 autographed by crew

This is a highly sought after but rarely come across GT-7 crew signed vintage NASA red stamped glossy.  Lovell and Borman have each also added their mission information.  It is in pristine conditon and will never need to be upgraded.  See the scan.  This is not inexpensively priced but given the growing market for items just like this one and considering the supply which is becoming ridiculously limited, I predict it will seem like a relative bargin at some point in the near future.  It just doesn't get any better than this beautiful example.
