    Description

    Gemini Midprogram Conference Including Experiment Results Book Originally from the Personal Collection of Gemini 6A Command Pilot Walter Schirra, Signed. A massive softbound book of 443 pages, 8" x 10.5", heavily illustrated. Published by NASA's Manned Spacecraft Center and dated February 23-25, 1966, just between the Gemini 7/6A and Gemini 8 missions. Signed on the cover: "Wally Schirra" (1923-2007). The foreword reads: "The Gemini Midprogram Conference presented a summary of the Gemini Program to date with emphasis on the first seven missions. This report contains the papers presented at that conference. These papers discuss the program development as it grew to meet the mission complexity and the stringent requirements for long-duration and rendezvous flight. The papers are divided into two major groups: The first concerns spacecraft and launch-vehicle description and development, mission operations, and mission results; and the second reports results of experiments performed." Quite an informative document. Fine condition.
