"Link Up in Space" depicts the Gemini spacecraft docked with the Agena Targeting Vehicle. On March 16, 1966, Gemini 8 astronauts Neil Armstrong and David Scott performed the first docking of two spacecraft in orbit. The Agena Target Vehicle malfunctioned and began to tumble. The spacecraft was undocked and Armstrong regained control by engaging the Reentry Control System (RCS) thrusters. The mission was aborted and the crew made an emergency landing in the Pacific Ocean, about 500 miles east of Okinawa, Japan.
