1965.01.15 - Gemini spacecraft No. 3 thrusters static fired.


Gemini spacecraft No. 3 thrusters were static fired as part of a complete, end-to-end propulsion system verification test program carried out on spacecraft Nos. 2 and 3 to provide an early thorough checkout of servicing procedures and equipment before their required use at the launch complex. T

The tests also completed development and systems testing of Gemini spacecraft hypergolic systems to enhance confidence in them before they were committed to flight. Deservicing of the propulsion system lasted until January 21.
