Gemini VII Capsule

Two-man spacecraft with black shingles, heatshield, and two crew egress hatches with windows.

Astronauts Frank Borman and James Lovell were launched into orbit aboard this spacecraft, Gemini VII, on December 4, 1965. Their primary mission was to show that humans could live in weightlessness for 14 days, a record that would stand until 1970.
