Description

This model of a Gemini capsule, reproduced at 1/25th the original size, has been signed on its base by Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL) astronauts Karol "Bo" Bobko and Robert Crippen. The MOL program would have used a modified Gemini spacecraft to send astronauts on long-term U.S. Air Force reconnaissance missions, but was cancelled in 1969. Bobko and Crippen went on to become Space Shuttle astronauts.

The hatch doors of the model are removable, as pictured, and once detached reveal a detailed interior.

A certificate of authenticity signed by Astronaut Scholarship Foundation Executive Director Tammy Knowles accompanies this lot.
