Gemini Heatshields Gallery


Overall view of the aft (active) side of the unflown Gemini heatshield. See the NASM collection ID #A19781815000 page for additional information.

The heatshield is behind Plexiglas, this gallery is dark, and the Smithsonian doesn't allow tripods, all of which limits the types of photos which may be taken. This photo was taken with natural lighting.

For better photos of an unflown Gemini heatshield, see my photos of the heatshield on the Gemini trainer at Goddard Space Flight Center or the Gemini heatshield at the Kansas Cosmosphere.
