The rendezvous with the eclipse was inserted back in the Gemini 12 flight plan after it once had been erased. A faulty fuel pump on the Agena target satellite forced cancellation of a plan to use the Agena to shoot to an altitude of 460 miles and resulted in a juggling of the plan. Launching Friday Flight director Glynn Lunney reported the Agena fuel pump problem was detected by the ground as the ix»cket propelled itself into orbit from Cape Kennedy Friday. He said the trouble was not considered a deterrent to a docking and the Gemini 12 launching went on schedule 99 minutes later, at 3:47 p.m. Major item lost by the failure to go to tlie high altitude was a plan by Aldrin to take ten-ain and weather pictures from 260 miles above the United States. Once airborne, the asti-onauts flew a near-perfect course in tracking the Agena target across the skies. They caught it during the third orbit after a 64,000-mile chase that took hours. Because of a failure in the spacecraft radar system, they had to rely more than intended on help from the ground. "We 're docked," Lovell e.\claimed minutes after the rendezvous when he slipped the Gemini nose into an Agena docking collar. They were the fourth pair of CJemini astronauts to accomplish a space linkup, providing additional confidence for later man-to- tlie-moon flights. Many of the maneuvers executed Friday night were similar to those that Apollo astronauts must make on their return trip from the mo(»t. After both men tried their hand at the controls, undooklng and docking, they reported a control problem with the Agena.
