Revised mission[ edit ] After reviewing the situation, NASA decided to launch an alternate Gemini 6A mission, eight days after the launch of Gemini 7which was scheduled as a day long-duration mission in December. Gemini 6A would perform the first rendezvous of two spacecraft in orbit, using Gemini 7 as the target, though they would not dock.
The crews also discussed the possibility of Stafford performing an EVA from 6A to 7, swapping places with Gemini 7 pilot Jim Lovellbut the commander of Gemini 7, Frank Bormanobjected, pointing out that it would require Lovell to wear an uncomfortable EVA suit on a long-duration mission.
The first attempt to launch the 6A mission second attempt for Gemini spacecraft No. Since the clock had started in the spacecraft, mission rules dictated that Wally Schirra, as the commander, had to immediately pull the D-ring between his knees and activate the ejection seats carrying the astronauts away from the disaster that would be the result of a fully fueled Titan II falling back onto LC However, Schirra did not feel any movement and knew that the booster had not lifted, so he decided not to abort.
His quick thinking probably saved the mission as the reliability of the Gemini ejector seats was questionable; the astronauts could have been badly injured from high g-forces as the seats had to launch them at least feet, which was deemed a safe distance from an exploding Titan II.
In addition, the cabin interior had been soaking in pure oxygen for hours. So it turns out what we would have seen, had we had to do that, would have been two Roman candles going out, because we were 15 or 16 psi, pure oxygen, soaking in that for an hour and a half.
You remember the tragic fire we had at the Cape. Jesus, with that fire going off and that, it would have burned the suits. Everything was soaked in oxygen.
That was another thing: NASA never tested it under the conditions that they would have had if they would have had to eject. They did have some tests at China Lake where they had a simulated mock-up of Gemini capsule, but what they did is fill it full of nitrogen.
They didn't have it filled full of oxygen in the sled test they had. About 40 minutes after the aborted launch, the booster and spacecraft were safed and the service tower raised up to it. After removing the propellants from the Titan II, the booster was checked out and they quickly uncovered the main culprit, which was an electrical plug that dropped out of the base of the booster prematurely.
Testing revealed that some plugs came out more easily than others, so they were replaced by different ones that would stay in place properly. However, the electrical plugs turned out to not be the only problem with the booster.
Examination of telemetry also showed that the Titan actually began experiencing thrust decay before the plug dropped out. Engineers spent all night combing through the first stage, but failed to find any cause for the thrust decay.
Eventually however, one technician identified the problem, which was a plastic dust cover inside the gas generator that had been carelessly left inside when the booster was assembled months earlier at the Martin-Marietta plant, blocking the flow of oxidizer.
The cover was removed and the Titan II cleared for another launch attempt. The Titan's batteries were replaced and the fuel prevalves, which had opened, were removed and it was decided to launch without them. The second attempt to launch the 6A mission third attempt for Gemini spacecraft No.
The plan called for the rendezvous to take place on the fourth orbit of Gemini 6. Due to their lower orbit they were gaining on Gemini 7 and were only miles, or 1, kilometersbehind.
The next burn was at two hours and eighteen minutes when Gemini 6A made a phase adjustment to put them on the same orbital inclination as Gemini 7. A third burn put them into a x mile by kilometer orbit. As they slowly gained, Schirra put Gemini 6A's computer in charge of the rendezvous.
At five hours and four minutes, he saw a bright star that he thought was Sirius, but this was in fact Gemini 7. The crew of Gemini 6A took this photo of Gemini 7 when they were about 7 meters apart After several more burns, the two spacecraft were only feet 40 meters apart.
During the next minutes, the crews moved as close as one foot 30 centimeterstalking over the radio. At one stage the spacecraft were stationkeeping so well that neither crew had to make any burns for 20 minutes.
Schirra said that because there is no turbulence in space, "I was amazed at my ability to maneuver. I did a fly-around inspection of Gemini 7, literally flying rings around it, and I could move to within inches of it in perfect confidence".
This ensured that there would not be any accidental collisions while the astronauts slept. Music in space The next day, before reentry,  the crew of Gemini 6A had a surprise: We have an object, looks like a satellite going from north to south, up in a polar orbit.D.C.
