From The Space Review: A darker shade of blue: The unknown Air Force manned space program (written by our favorite Space Review author)

The Military Orbital Development System (MODS) was a proposal in early 1962 for a space station that would use up to two Gemini spacecraft to conduct preliminary research in space. MODS eventually evolved into the Manned Orbiting Laboratory (MOL), which had a dedicated reconnaissance mission and was canceled in summer 1969. (credit: Model and photo by Mike Mackowski)

I don't know a lot of stuff. But I know people who know stuff.* I got this from somebody who knows a lot about Gemini.



*It took me a long time to realize that this was itself a skillset.

on Military Orbital Development System (MODS) proposal
McDonnell Aircraft Corp. proposed also this docking for MORL, a NASA study for small Space station in 1960s
