What was the purpose of the Gemini missions?
July 10, 2012 3:03PM
The Gemini missions were designed to bridge the gap between the small Mercury mission and the much larger and more demanding Apollo moon missions.
Gemini developed orbital rendezvous, navigation, guidance and docking techniques alongside testing various parts and components to be fitted to the future Apollo spacecraft. Gemini 12 was the last Gemini flight in 1966.
