  • Description


    Shows Virgil "Gus" Grissom and John Young who will fly the Gemini into space March 22 (hopefully) going through a dry run at Cape Kennedy. This is correctly not a dry run but a "wet mock" (This took place Monday, March 8). The wet mock involved a full countdown for the shot, including fuelling the missile. The countdown was halted a few minutes before the firing; otherwise it would have gone off. No dope received with film but it is straightforward enough, showing the two men going into the capsule and rehearsing.
