Attacking with rockets, the pilots said they sank the vessel. 'I'm Thrilled to L Mrs. White as F HOUSTON, Tex. (AP)— "I'm thrilled to death," said Mrs. Edward H. White today after she watched her astronaut husband blasted off into space. "It's a moment we've been waiting for," she said. "There's no describing how I feel." Mrs. James A. McDivitt, wife of the command pilot of the space capsule, appeared awestruck as she watched Gemini 4 rise smoothly from its Cape Kennedy launch pad. )eoth/ Soys light Begins Mrs. White had calmly advised her husband to "have fun" not long before the giant rocket took him into space. Both she and Mrs. James McDivitt had awakened before dawn to receive final prelaunch telephone calls from their astronaut husbands at Cape Kennedy and then go through a big day in their lives. After the five-minute phone chats, the women quickly re mension and unreal sensation. It is as if you had leaped into, "This seems almost unreal." the air and never really came down again, lost in a perpetual fall around the earth. Ahead of the spacecraft on « golden tether, you plummet together at some 17,500 miles per hour — and yet you feel not so much as a breath of breeze — for there is no air. The sun stands out in the blackness as a great light bulb that seemingly spreads no light, It is only when the sun's rays she said as she and her three children sat on the floor of a bedroom, their eyes glued to a television set. "My daddy's in there." Mike McDivitt, 8, announced proudly as the rocket soared into space. Astronaut White's young daughter, Bonnie Lynn, 9, said simply, "I'm proud of him." Her older brother, Edward III, 11, said, "It's great." countdown on their television sets. The astronauts did most of the talking. Mrs. McDivitt and her three children had attended a special 5:30 a.m. Mass at nearby St. Paul's Roman Catholic church. They were the only worshippers. The two wives may visit the fuel in an attempt to move closer to the target satellite — the burned-out second stage of the Titan 2 booster rocket. McDivitt and white originally planned to approach within 2 feet of the orbiting booster and White was to emerge and move close to it. The possibility that he would actually put his hand on it was ruled out early in the mission when it was learned that it was tumbling excessively and thus was a possible threat to White. McDivitt used 50 per cent of his fuel in maneuvering toward the Titan stage, but said he still was three to four miles away and "we just can't close on it." "Save the fuel. We're more concerned about the lifetime (of the mission) than closing with that booster. Let's scrub it." The Gemini 4 carried enough fuel to make maneuvers totaling 245 miles. In his vain attempts to catch the booster during the first orbit, McDivitt used up 109 miles of this capability. The failure to rendezvous with the booster indicated that more work needs to be done before U.S. attempts to hook up satellites in maneuvers planned on Gemini flights late this year. A link-up had been scheduled next October with a Gemini craft piloted by astronauts Walter Schirra and Tom Stafford. The introduction of the rendezvous maneuver for today's flight plan was a late decision. It was made after astronauts Virgil Grissom and John Young demonstrated the maneuverability of the Gemini craft on a March 23 flight. with the booster, possibly approaching to within 10 feet. No exit was planned during this maneuver. Both the ability to rendezvous and to operate outside of an orbiting spacecraft are techniques which must be prefected tor later flight to the moon. The dramatic journey of tht Gemini 4 started at 10:19 a.m. EST when the mighty Titan 2 thundered off its Cape Kennedy launching stand and propelled the craft into its precise orbit. It was the start of America's longest attempted manned flight yet — an endurance mission scheduled to end about 12M p.m. EST next Monday after «2 circuits of the globe in 07 hours, 50 minutes. ? The launching was delayed 1 hour, 16 minutes because of a balky launch pad service tower that would not fold down from the rocket due to an electrical malfunction.
