Course Description

While Project Mercury proved that NASA could successfully launch astronauts into orbit and recover them, many lessons still needed to be learned before landing on the moon. Taking place between 1965 and 1966, Project Gemini featured a 2-man spacecraft and a more powerful rocket.  Project Gemini set out to practice many of the maneuvers and techniques required to travel to and land on the moon such as learning to intercept and dock with other spacecraft, learning how to perform outside the spacecraft in a spacesuit, and testing astronauts’ endurance to survive in space for weeks at a time.  This is the second class of a series outlining NASA’s race to the moon, but you do not have to have attended the previous session.
