Synopsis

Sometimes overlooked, Project Gemini was the crucible of America's space experience. Originally conceived as the 'Mercury Mark II' program, the need to master rendezvous, EVA and long duration missions transformed Gemini into a bold new program - a complex project providing the seasoning in men and machines that led to success in Apollo. This release includes all the onboard Gemini motion picture footage, as well as unique footage of the development of the Gemini spacecraft and Titan II launch vehicle. Rare reels include a unique glimpse into the cockpit as a suited crewmember tests his ability to reach and view each control in the spacecraft. You'll see stacking operations of a Gemini- Titan, and see multi-angle coverage of every Gemini launch. Never before has such a comprehensive visual history of Project Gemini been assembled.
