spacewatching: This photograph of the Gemini 7 spacecraft was taken from Gemini 6 during rendezvous and station keeping maneuvers at an altitude of approximately 160 miles above the Earth. Gemini 6 and Gemini 7 launched on December 15, 1965 and December 4, 1965, respectively. Walter M. Schirra, Jr. and Thomas P. Stafford on Gemini 6 and Edward H. White II and Michael Collins on Gemini 7 practiced rendezvous and station keeping together for one day in orbit.

June 3, 1965 Gemini IV astronauts James McDivitt and Edward White walk towards Pad 19 at Cape Canaveral. Note that Mc Divitt wore an Omega Speedmaster chronograph on each wrist, while Edward “Ed” White wore a pair of Omega Speedmaster 105.003-64 chronographs on his left forearm. The Gemini IV astronauts were the first to wear an American flag on the shoulder of their spacesuit. (Photo: NASA)

The colossal Energia rocket was a Soviet heavy lift vehicle; the rocket had the capacity to place about 100 tonnes in Low Earth orbit. Work on the Energia system began in 1976 after the decision was made to cancel the unsuccessful N1 moon rocket. The Energia was first test-launched on 15 May 1987. The payload was the Polyus spacecraft, a prototype orbital weapons platform designed to destroy SDI satellites with a megawatt carbon-dioxide laser, unfortunately it failed to reach orbit and…
