Gemini was NASA's second human space flight program following Project Mercury. Gemini was designed to develop the techniques that would be indispensable for future manned space flights. Thus, spacewalks, orbital maneuvers and rendezvous and docking procedures were tested in a total of ten Gemini flights in 1965-66 that were launched from Cape Canaveral atop the Titan II.
The name Gemini was chosen because the astronaut crewmen would be seated abreast in the spacecraft, with the Latin word Gemini meaning “side by side”. McDonnell Aircraft was selected in 1961 to build the Gemini capsule, which measured 19 ft long and 10 ft diameter with a weight of 8,490 lbs. The first manned Gemini mission was launched on March 23, 1965.
The Dragon Wings Space Collection includes high quality, fully assembled, die-cast models of spacecraft and rockets. Each model is crafted with meticulous attention to detail, using original specifications. They are constructed with diecast metal and some plastic components.
