Photo Gallery: Rare rocket delivery

One of only six Gemini-Titan rocket displays in the world was delivered to NASA Johnson Space Center (JSC) in Houston, Texas on June 16 and June 17, 2010. The 100-foot tall rocket came to JSC by way of Kennedy Space Center in Florida, where it stood on display for decades.

As pictured here, the Gemini-Titan -- comprised of a mock-up two-seat spacecraft and two first stages from a retired Titan II missile -- now lies in a field at Johnson Space Center awaiting its repair and restoration.

Ultimately, the Gemini-Titan will be erected in JSC's rocket park, next to the Little Joe II and Mercury-Redstone rocket that stands there now, alongside the building housing one of only three Apollo-Saturn V rockets.
