On December 4, 1965, NASA launched the Gemini 7 spacecraft, on a Titan II booster, putting Frank Borman and James A. Lovell, Jr. into Earth orbit. This mission set what was then a new record for long duration manned space flight: 206 revolutions (330 hrs., 35 mins). During this 14 day period, the Gemini 7 mission achieved some remarkable "firsts" - manned "station-keeping" (formation flying) and "proximity operations" (relative maneuvering in orbit) with the Gemini 6 spacecraft, and performed more than 20 scientific experiments. INCLUDES: Windows CD-ROM featuring MPG video, orbital photography from the Gemini 7 mission, and more.
