GEMINI 8 ASTRONAUTS TRAINING SESSION - 1966 Gemini 8 astronauts Neil Armstrong and David Scott go through a training simulation of what to do after touching down in water upon re-entry. The astronauts are preparing for their upcoming successful spaceflight in March.
CERMAN DESCRIBES PLANNED EVA Astronaut Eugene A. Cernan describes an animation of the planned EVA (Extra Vehicular Activity) for the upcoming Gemini 9 mission. First using a small model, and then an animated simulation, he describes the Environmental Life Support System (ELSS) chest-pack, and alterations made in the G4C suit legs to ward off heat from the AMU's hydrogen peroxide maneuvering rockets. The simulation shows him exiting the spacecraft, then being propelled a distance from it, using the thruster rockets. To insure that he can return, he is tethered by a thick cable. He then is seen returning to and entering the spacecraft.

SPACE TECHNOLOGY AIDS DOCTORS Resulting from developments coming from the space program, new medical technology uses powerful new tools. A medical instrument, looking much like a handgun, is used to implant electrodes allowing heart rhythms to be monitored with a portable external device. The two patients on which the procedure is conducted (an adult male and a young boy) show no evidence of pain or discomfort during or after the installation of the monitor.
