Gemini 11 was the ninth crewed mission of the NASA's Project Gemini. It was commanded by Command Pilot Charles "Pete" Conrad, Jr. and Pulot Richard F. Gordon, Jr. The crew performed a direct-ascent rendezvous with the Agena Target Vehicle on the first orbit and used the Agena rocket engine to put the combined craft in a higher orbit. Astronauts also performed two EVAs and conducted various scientific experiments. The mission started on September 12, 1966, 14:42:26 UTC and, having performed the first totally automatic, computer-controlled reentry, it ended on September 15, 1966, 13:59:35 UTC.
