From the Chicago Sun-Times:
quote:
Astronaut James Lovell made famous the phrase "Houston, we have a problem.'' That was during the near-disastrous Apollo 13 mission, celebrated in a best-selling book and hit film.

On Monday? No problem, Chicago.

Another space ship commanded by Lovell -- the Gemini 12 capsule -- was carefully lifted by crane from the back of a truck and gingerly slid through the doors of the Adler Planetarium.

Fellow Astronomers, Space enthusiasts and CollectSpace members,

I recently had the grand opportunity to document the arrival of the
Gemini XII space capsule at the Adler Planetarium in Chicago. A
bright morning found the capsule gleeming in the sunshine on a truck
bed as I arrived...and here was an actual piece of American history
presented right before me.

A full account of the event with detailed pictures can be found here
at the Chicago Astronomer:

It is broken into three chronological threads for easier viewing.

As individuals of science and space exploration, I'm sure you will
enjoy this report.

Respectfully,

Chicago Astronomer Joe

Thank you for your appreciation of the Gemini XII arrival event. It certainly was great fun documenting it and actually sticking my head in the capsule and looking around was amazing.
