Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Gemini 9A (officially Gemini IX-A) was a 1966 manned spaceflight in NASA's Gemini program. It was the 7th manned Gemini flight, the 13th manned American flight and the 23rd spaceflight of all time (includes X-15 flights over 100 kilometres (62 mi)). Stafford and Cernan became the first backup crew to fly in space since Scott Carpenter replaced Deke Slayton on MA-7. The original prime crew for Gemini IX, Elliott See (Command Pilot) and Charles Bassett (Pilot), were both killed on February 28, 1966 (four months before the mission) when their plane crashed into the McDonnell building in St. Louis, Missouri where their spacecraft was being built.show more
