This is a 13 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on The Space Race – The Gemini Project. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides and to the presentation as you need to.
The major objective of Program Gemini was to develop some very specific spacecraft and inflight capabilities in support of upcoming Apollo Program. The Gemini program consisted of 12 two-man spacecraft that were designed to orbit the Earth and they were launched between 1964 and 1966 with 10 of the flights being manned.
Gemini was designed to experiment with and test the astronaut’s ability to manually maneuver their spacecraft. Gemini proved very useful by developing the techniques for orbital docking that would later be crucial for the Apollo series with their lunar landing. It led to the development of the Apollo Moon Landing Program.
The presentation covers the following:
Gemini 1 & Gemini 3
Gemini 6 & Gemini 7
