The powerful Titan 2, making its debut as a space booster, lifted off at 11 a.m. after a perfect countdown and hoisted the 7,000- pound spacecraft into an orbital path ranging from 99.6 to 204 miles high. “We’ve got an orbit! It’s a beaut,” said the operations di rector, Walter C. Williams, just six minutes after blastoff. Williams told a news confer ence later the high point was 21 miles higher than desired because of faster - than - planned booster speed. But he said that on a manned mission, the astronauts easily could correct this with their on-board fuel supply. Project director Charles Ma thews termed the flight a mile stone in the program. He said Gemini teams can now move con fidently toward an unmanned bal listic space craft test in the sum mer and a flight by two astro nauts late in the year. Because officials sought only en gineering data, no attempt was made to separate the spacecraft from the spent rocket casing. The entire assembly, weighing 1(11,500 pounds, rocketed into or bit and was followed by the space agency’s worldwide tracking net work for little more than one or bit before its electrical power and radio beacon ceased as intended. The satellite was expected to circle the earth silently for about 3% days before burning up as a result of atmospheric friction. It is the second heaviest satellite launched by the United States, be hind the world record 37,700-pound giant boosted by a Saturn rocket in January. The Saturn satellite also mostly dead weight, but both are considered significant steps toward a U. S. goal of landing astronauts on the moon in this decade. The Gemini program promises many dramatic episodes. The first manned flight is to place a two- man team into space for three orbits lasting a total of about five hours, to check out all systems. The second manned flight, in 1965, will extend to four days and the third to seven days, gradually working to two weeks to gather information on man’s physical re actions to prolonged weightless _ flight. svery per- jOll’S sign ASTRONAUTS SURVEY GEMINI CAPSULE Astronaut Neil Armstrong, inspects project Gemini capsule. > A&M Veterinarian Attends CD Meet Dr. Alvin A.
