Summary:
Project Gemini was developed to demonstrate the feasibility of man being able to withstand long duration space flight. Orbital techniques for rendezvous and docking were successfully achieved during the program and Gemini became a stepping stone to Project Apollo which eventually placed men on the surface of the moon. During Project Gemini, extensive technological, engineering, and medical experiments were conducted in space as well as extra-vehicular activity. Twelve Gemini spacecraft were launched during 1964-1966 and all of the major objectives of the program were successfully completed. During the years of the Gemini program the United States assumed undisputed leadership in space.
