Gemini 7 - The NASA Mission Reports comes with a bonus Windows CDROM featuring NASA movies, hundreds of images and more! 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. . .
INCLUDES: Windows CD-ROM featuring MPG video, orbital photography from the Gemini 7 mission, and more. . . I also found the CD as enjoyable as ever. It contains a nice 15 minute interview with Jim Lovell, a NASA film on the mission and over 400 photos of the Earth. While many of the photos are low resolution, there are still really good and high resolution photographs are outstanding. - Reviewer: J. Keller
