A beautiful print entitled "Rendezvous" by Artist Patrick Eby
NASA successfully completed its first rendezvous mission with two Gemini spacecraft, Gemini VI and Gemini VII in December 1965. The main purpose of Gemini VI, crewed by astronauts Walter Schirra and Thomas Stafford, was the rendezvous with Gemini VII, crewed by James Lovell and Frank Borman. The main purpose of Gemini VII, on the other hand, was studying the long-term effects of long-duration (up to 14 days) space flight on a two-man crew. The orbit of Gemini 6 and 7 was one of the final stepping stones to the Apollo program.
