Crew of reserve
ObjectivesInitially one return and a mooring with a Agena launched the same day. Then an appointment, on a more raised orbit, with the Agena target left by Gemini 8. As this rocket had not had any more electricity for several months, the crew was going to be able to test his capacity to carry out an appointment with a passive vehicle. A extra-vehicular exit was also with the program.
Course of the flightThe launching of Agena was perfect later like that of Gemini 10,100 minutes. After the appointment and the mooring with their target, they ignited the engine of Agena to find itself on a Orbite of 763 km Apogée, record at the time. The mission continued with a extra-vehicular Hake exit. There were satisfied to remain " debout" on the level of the hatchway, taking photographs of the Milky Way. They separated then from their Agena to carry out one return with Agena of Gemini 8. 48 hours after the beginning of the flight, Collins carried out one second exit during which it recovered a collector of Micrométéorite S. Thanks to a gas jet gun, it could then go to inspect the rocket-target which flew to a few meters of the Gemini vessel.
