Created By The Mercury 7 Astronauts
This vintage eight-page 8" x 10" fact sheet, entitled "Gemini XII Flight and Gemini Program Summary" is signed by Gemini XII Commander James Lovell and Pilot Buzz Aldrin.
The fact sheet is one of the NASA Fact Sheet publications prepared by the NASA Public Affairs Office of Houston, Texas. This particular fact sheet is labeled "Fact Sheet 291-I" and dated December 1966.
As its name suggests, the booklet includes information pertaining to the Gemini XII mission, the final mission in the Gemini program. It includes a summary of the flight along with step-by-step details of the astronauts and mission control along with any mishaps or malfunctions that occurred. It also features photos taken before, during and after the mission, spotlights on both Lovell and Aldrin, and information on the other Gemini program missions.
These fact sheet publications were issued by NASA after each mission explaining the objectives and technical details of what happened during the missions. The NASA fact sheets from this era are hard to find, especially in this condition. This fact sheet is in excellent condition with only a little discoloration. This is an original NASA publication, not a reprint or copy.
Gemini XII was Lovell's second flight; he had previously flown on Gemini VII. He later went on to command two of the most famous Apollo missions, Apollo 8 (the first mission to travel to and orbit the Moon) and Apollo 13. Gemini XII was Aldrin's first spaceflight; he went on to make history as the second man to set foot on the Moon as Lunar Module Pilot of Apollo 11.
