Scott Ourecky wanted to flya€”he never dreamed he'd end up in a secret military space program. The year is 1968: The Cold War is far from over, nuclear annihilation is always only a heartbeat away. America is racing the Soviet Union to land men on the Moon, a war is raging, and a pivotal presidential election looms on the horizon. A child of the early space age, Lieutenant Scott Ourecky joined the Air Force with aspirations of going to flight school. A brilliant engineer, he repeatedly fails the aptitude test to become a pilot but is selected to work on a highly classified military space programa€”the innocuously named Aerospace Support Projecta€”in which Air Force astronauts are slated to fly missions to intercept and destroy suspect Soviet satellites. When one of the astronauts in training abruptly falls out of the project, Ourecky is asked to fill in for the two-man simulated missions and survival training only, serving with a headstrong and abrasive test pilot, Major Drew Carson, until another astronaut can be assigned. By far the most proficient pilot assigned to the project, Carson has a dangerous propensity to engage in a€œpick-upa€ dog fighting sessions while on cross-country training flights. And although Ourecky was only a temporary a€œplace holder, a€ not destined to fly in space, he soon finds himself much more involved than he ever anticipateda€”and in deepest peril. Based on a real secret space program, Blue Gemini combines high-altitude action with edge-of-your-seat storytelling to create a modern Cold War thriller.Billowing black smoke, the pair of heavy capacity forklifts roared into operation, quickly shuttling boxes and crates into the hangar. ... He picked up a Kodak Instamatic 104 cameraa€”pre-loaded with a film cartridgea€”from the passenger seat.
