Transcript for Video Clip: Mercury, Gemini, Apollo Planning

Audio

“The trip to the moon would consist of a three-phased manned building block program. First, the Mercury Program to show that man could indeed go into space and return. Next, the Gemini Program to master the techniques of rendezvous, docking, and leaving the spacecraft while still in space. And finally, the Apollo Program to land men on the moon, carry out limited exploration, and return them safely to earth.”
