I write the NASA History Facebook and Twitter posts.

The Gemini docking simulator. I’m not sure where this was located.

I’m going to guess it was located in a very big room.
Is this the same one that was strung up in a hanger? That was at Langley. This doesn’t look like that one though.

I believe this was Johnson. The facilities there opened in September of 1963, and encompassed everything from Gemini forward. These are the types of artifacts that need to be put in museums too….

    Good question! Unfortunately I’m not sure, because I’m not very familiar with the layout at KSC.
