Gemini was the intermediate manned space flight program between America's first steps into space with Mercury and the amazing and unprecedented accomplishments achieved during the manned lunar expeditions of Apollo.
This book takes a detailed look at the many achievements of Project Gemini such as the first spacewalk and the first on-orbit rendezvous of two spacecraft. Gemini also gave NASA more experience with human spaceflight in preparation for travel to the Moon. This well-received, but long out-of print, book is the essential account of the Gemini program.
