Not just a scaled-up Mercury capsule, the Gemini spacecraft is a ship for astronauts to fly By Wesley S. Griswold WITHIN the next few months, for the first time in our space program, two U.S. astronauts are expected to go into orbit together.

Today we're busy building rockets and spacecraft to take men to the moon.
