  • Description


    This appears to be the docking experiment carried out at Cape Kennedy over the weekend or Monday. GT-6 astros, both prime team and back-up, are practising techniques for the rendezvous, which is the key feature of gt-6. An Atlas Agena rocket will be launched 90 minutes ahead of GT-6. Then Gt-6 will be launched and the astros will attempt to link up --that is, actually dock--the capsule and the Agena. That's the main purpose of GT-6.



    Pilot for GT. 6 is astro Walter Schirra (42 yrs old).
