Gemini 4, 1st ed. 2018 An Astronaut Steps into the Void Space Exploration Series
Auteur : Shayler David J.
The flight of Gemini 4 in June 1965 was conducted barely four years after the first Americans flew in space. It was a bold step by NASA to accomplish the first American spacewalk and to extend the U.S. flight duration record to four days. This would be double the experience gained from the six Mercury missions combined.
This daring mission was the first to be directed from the new Mission Control at the Manned Spacecraft Center near Houston, Texas. It also revealed that:
- Working outside the spacecraft would require further study.
- Developing the techniques to rendezvous with another object in space would not be as straightforward as NASA had hoped.
- Living in a small spacecraft for several days was a challenging but necessary step in the quest for even longer flights.
