Gemini-Titan II Air Force Launch Vehicle Press Handbook
We are delighted to offer the sixth in a series of special, high
quality reprints of vintage NASA working documents. Many of
you know that these originals are scarce to rare and command
hundreds of dollars at auctions or bookstores if they can be found
at all. Although some of the documents can be found online in PDF
formats, many have been scanned with less than desirable
reproductions. We have gone to significant effort to maintain the
original quality in our reprints.
This sixth volume in our series is the "Gemini-Titan II Press
Handbook". This was revised and printed for use in October 1965 just
after the aborted Gemini 6 launch and reflects the revised plans for
a Gemini 7/6 rendezvous.
This is an amazing volume, which includes many B&W photos and
diagrams of the GT-II Launch Vehicle, pre-flight tests and checkout,
countdown and flight sequences, detailed launch vehicle systems
description, Launch Complex 19 detailed description, the Gemini
spacecraft, rendezvous and docking and six appendices on the Air
Force Space Systems Division, Program Management, Gemini astronauts,
GT-II Chronology, Glossary and Critical Parts Suppliers.
Fascinating and rare. We have republished this in a 3 ring
binder similar to the original. Fully indexed.
In three ring binder, printed on regular paper stock, 8.5x11
inches, c. 235 pages. Private reprint by Boggs SpaceBooks®.
