I am a big Gemini fan and am writing a historical paper for an AIAA conference on the many Gemini concepts and proposed applications. This info is scattered in many dispersed documents all over the internet, so I am trying to consolidate them in one place (https://lostgeminimissions.wordpress.com/). I am also trying to thread them together (with each other) and their relationship to other NASA and USAF programs. I also build scale models of this (and similar) stuff ().
One of the first such programs was the USAF's Manned Orbital Development Station (MODS). Was there ever a report issued on this program, or a contemporary article or similar? Maybe an illustration or two of what they had in mind. I'm guessing the answer is "no" but I thought I'd ask here.
Thanks.

And I'm a Big Gemini fan (lame pun, run for cover)

Try forum member Archipeppe a.k.a Giuseppe de Chiara. He made drawings of the entire Gemini family back then.




There is also Astronautix Gemini (many) entries. http://www.astronautix.com/g/gemini.html

I have always admired your drawings Guiseppe. I've looked at the Astronautix site and there is great stuff there (I dug the lunar rescue Gemini and winged Gemini docs out of the trash in St. Louis way back when) but I am looking for source documents. Thanks all.
