In this episode of the Terranauts podcast we move into 1966, NASA is growing and the world is changing.

As the calendar turned over from 1965 to 1966, the Gemini program was entering a new phase. Having completed half of it’s flight program and having made progress on all of it’s major objectives, the program was already thinking about wrapping up. In a sense though, Gemini was just a marker of its time. A lot of things were changing quickly as the world moved from 1966 at NASA, in the space program and even around the world. In this episode of Terranauts we take a moment to look at what the world looked like at the dawn of the year 1966.
