With this mission, NASA successfully completed its first rendezvous of two spacecraft. This photograph of the NASA Gemini VII spacecraft was taken through the hatch window of the Gemini VI spacecraft during rendezvous and staion keeping maneuvres at an altitude of approximately 160 miles on December 15, 1965. The photograph was taken using Kodak SO 217 film with an ASA of 64. The Gemini VI crew of Walter Schirra and Thomas Stafford made rendezvous with the orbiting Gemini VII less than six hours after launch and flew within inches of the spacecraft housing Jim Lovell and Frank Borman.
