Engineers in Space Part 2 - Project Gemini (3 credit hours)
This course chronicles the events and achievements of American engineers and scientists who followed the Mercury Project, but who were very aware that there was a major hurdle between placing a man in space and placing a man on the moon and assuring his safe return. The members of this project had the responsibility for placing the first pair of American astronauts into outer space in preparation for a lunar landing. It summarizes the concepts and planning by the officials of NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and other involved engineers and contractors. This course describes the engineering and design efforts necessary to provide the equipment and the technology to enable our second group of astronauts to orbit above the earth's surface for lengthy periods of time, to walk in space, and to rendezvous with other spacecrafts. This is the sixth in a series of Twentieth Century projects in which engineers overcame major technological challenges and were on the forefront of engineering innovation. The course details the contributions of the many engineers, manufacturers, and contractors, and their remarkable foresight.

1.       Learn why a “bridge” project was so necessary after President Kennedy’s commitment to place a man on the Moon and safely return him to Earth by the end of the 1960’s.

2.       See how the NASA team handled pressure in the face of early dominance by the Soviet Union in the “Space Race.”
 
3.       Learn how the U. S. went from a single-pilot module to an actual two-man spacecraft.
 
4.       Gain an understanding of how each step in the program had significance toward achieving the goal of the United States.
 
5.       Learn how the training and experience of the astronauts and engineers prepared them with the confidence to pursue a mission of such huge proportions.
 
6.       Follow the progress of each Gemini mission to learn why each function of every flight was critical and necessary to prepare the U. S. for a lunar landing.
 
7.       And, once again, come to realize how strong leadership and excellent engineering management helped to fulfill a fantastic outcome.
