Scope and Contents

From the Sub-Group: Working files related to the Gemini program consist of documents detailing the spacecraft and equipment used by Gemini astronauts in most of the Gemini missions under the heading "Systems." Following these technical documents are coursework and memos related to the training undertaken by Neil Armstrong for his part in Gemini missions under the heading "Training." Memos, working documents, internal notes, and reports which detail the planning of specific Gemini missions, particularly Gemini VII, are collected together under the "Mission Planning" header. Items that facilitated the actual execution of missions, whether in flight or in training, such as checklists, operating procedures, and flight plans, are housed together under the heading "Mission Planning/Execution.". Transcriptions of the Gemini VIII in-mission communications, with Armstrong's pilot's report and narrative history of Gemini VIII, are collected under the heading "Results," together with a series of reports detailing the scientific findings of the Gemini program overall. The working files are concluded by a series of documents intended for the press, and materials produced by NASA contractors advertising their technical contributions to the Gemini program. Press kits and related documents fall under the heading "Public Relations."
