Title: The Lost Missions of Gemini
Presenter: Michael Mackowski, Retired Spacecraft Engineer
Abstract: In addition to the NASA flights that perfected the technologies required for the Apollo lunar program, the Gemini spacecraft was considered for many other missions. Some of these involved minor upgrades, while others proposed highly modified variants of the basic Gemini capsule and adaptor. Most of these proposals never got past the study phase, but a few got to the mock-up stage or even the beginning of fabrication of flight hardware (e.g., Manned Orbiting Laboratory). This presentation takes a fresh look at the little-known Gemini applications, who sponsored them, and how they related to other contemporary space projects.
