By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.

Landing Technique* Two-man Gemini* teams wil test many techniques essential fo the Apollo lunar landing program The astronauts will remain in orbit for periods up to two weeks they will join their spacecraf with another orbiting satellite and eventually one of the crev is lo open the capsule hatch and step outside to see what it's like more than 100 miles above the earth. Gemini presently is nearly a year behind schedule. This was a major reason space officials de clared an end to Project, Mercury Main reasons for the lag involve technical problems associate with developing a highly sophis licated spacecraft and man-rating the powerful Titan 2 booster rock et.

New Ftiels As a result of Mercury experiences, new fuel and power systems have been devised for Gem ini and the emphasis will be on pilot control rather than on auto matic as in Mercury. The need for a two-man crew was explained by Gemini official Andre 3. Meyer Jr.; "For -really extended flight periods, it was considered most desirable to be able to alternate rest periods and generally to lighten the load on one man." He said two men would simplify rendezvous maneuvers and the exit»of one of the pilots into space. Dr. Stanley White of the Manned Spacecraft Center , said .he dual pilot arrangement will permit , simultaneous medical nonitoring of two men and enable .he astrohuats to use instruments .0 check one another's condition.

An unmanned orbital flight of a complete capsule is scheduled for June 1964. If all goes well, two astronauts —selected from the original seve Mercury pilots and the nine pilo named last fall—will make th first manned Gemini trip in O tober 1964. The flight presently programmed for three days provide basic data for long durt tion flights, ut it could be ex tended. Longer Plights During 1964, the length of th flights will be increased to a wee and then two weeks to gather ex tensive medical data oh the lots' reaction to prolonged expc sure to space weightlessness. Th information is needed before ma ventures forth to the moon an planets. During the long duration trips Gemini teams will conduct earl space rendezvous experimen with a small target satellite. Th two objects.will not be joined space. When confidence is gained i this maneuver, an Agena satelli will be shot into orbit from Cap Canaveral by an Atlas rocket an Lhe two-man craft will launched a day or two later t attempt a hookup, probably late 1965. Once the two vehicles hav docked, the Gemini astronaut will use the Agena fuel suppl and engine to alter course, pa sibly scooting from their norma 180-mile-high altitude to mor than 600 miles into space. Then the Agena will be jetti soned and Gemini will return earth. Initial flights will use Mercury-type parachute system for a water landing. But a wing like paraglider device is being veloped to enable later Gemin craft to maneuver near earth am land like a glider on solid ground The National Aeronautics an Space Administration has place $456.6-million order with th VIcDonnell Aircraft Co., St. Louis for 13 Gemini capsules. Under a agreement reached with NAS> earlier this year, the Air Fore will use some of the capsules fa :est military applications of man n-space — including rendezvou with and inspection of suspectec histile satellites, reconnaissanc and observation of enemy missil aunchings. By 1965, initial earth orbi lights of the Apollo spaceship wi )egin to overlap Gemini and b 1967 NASA's participation in Gem ni is expected to end.
