Gemini display at the Space Park

Recommended Posts

Great photo and may the last of America's remarkable Mercury astronauts, John Glenn, rest in peace.  He died today after a life of service to this nation.  He and his generation enriched our lives.

Being a huge fan of the Space Race era, especially in NASA's storyline with the engineers, support staff, astronauts, and the space equipment, I knew right off the bat the diagrams in the background are discussing the Agena Project, the extra rocket designed for understanding rendezvous and docking, and responsible for setting the Gemini spacecraft to a new world record of highest altitude achieved with human flight.  That belonged to Gemini IX with Michael Collins.
