On this episode of the Terranauts podcast, NASA suffers a serious failure within the Gemini program. NASA’s response could be important to getting this system again on observe.
It was the twenty fifth of October, 1965. And Houston had an issue. And by that I imply that Gene Kranz and the flight management group within the mission management centre of the manned spaceflight heart within the Houston had an issue, Gemini VI had failed.
For the primary time in over 4 years NASA had launched a human area flight mission that had led to failure. True, the people within the mission had not truly gotten off the launch pad for the reason that mission had ended when the unmanned Gemini Agena Goal Automobile had destroyed itself on the best way to orbit. Nonetheless Gemini VI was a failed mission.
How NASA responded to that failure would say loads about how far it had are available 4 years – and the way it was getting ready for its for much longer journey to the floor of the Moon and again.
