New Mexico Museum of Space History
Alamogordo – It sounds simple. Launch two spacecraft into orbit and get them close enough to dock, but the mission was fraught with problems from the beginning. Discover the story behind the rendezvous of Gemini 6 and 7, learn what the first musical instruments in space were, and how even the annual Army/Navy game played a role in this mission as Museum Executive Director Chris Orwoll presents the December 4 Launch Pad Lecture “Close Encounters: Rendezvous in Space with Gemini 6 and 7.”
The Launch Pad Lecture is free to the public and starts at 9 a.m. on the first floor of the museum. Coffee and donuts are compliments of the International Space Hall of Fame Foundation. The next lecture will be on Jan. 8, 2016, and the topic will be Running Around the World: Exercise in Space.
