In this episode of the Terranauts podcast we get caught up on what had been going on with the Agena program. 

Remember those guys? They were the ones whose rocket had blown up after launch which had caused the Gemini VI mission to be aborted before it even got off the launch pad.  While the rest of the Gemini program has been making history, they have been trying to figure out how to get back to flight status.
