The primary goals of the orbital flight, set for Tuesday, were spelled out Wednesday by\ the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Gemini, designed to keep two men in orbit for up to two weeks to practice rendezvous and other techniques for moon missions, is the bridge between the successful Mercury manned spaceOigbt program and the Apollo men - to - the moon venture. The first Gemini spacecraft, a production model stripped of life support gear, is to be hurled into an orbit ranging from 99 to 183 miles above earth. No attempt will be made to recover the craft. The upcoming shot was originally scheduled for last fall. Any troubles in the flight would push the first manned mission well into 1965. NASA's main objectives for the first shot are: —To prove that the Titan - 2 rocket and its 7.000 - pound spacecraft are able to work to­ gether properly on the six min-j ute climb into orbit; —To measure the heat caused by air fricUon on both the booster and capsule during launch; —To prove that the modified Titan - 2 rocket performs as planned and does not produce excessive vibrations or other conditions unsuitable for manned flight; —To show that the rocket and its ground guidance sys tems are able to achieve the proper orbit necessary for fu ture manned missions; •To check the racket's flight control systems; —To test a unique trouble detecting device designed to give astronauts enough warning to abandon their craft in the event of an impending failure; —To prove that the 19 - foot spacecraft and its equipment section is capable of withstand ing stresses during its trip into orbit. In addition, the shot will be used to check out' ground equipment, launch facilities and to provide training for later flights. IT'S DIAMOND SAYINGS TIME AT..
