S65-61789 (12 Dec. 1965) --- Astronauts Walter M. Schirra Jr. (right), Gemini-6 command pilot; and Thomas P. Stafford (center), pilot, enjoy a prelaunch breakfast on the morning of the proposed launch of NASA's two-day Gemini-6 spaceflight. At left is astronaut L. Gordon Cooper Jr., command pilot of the Gemini-5 space mission. An attempt was made to launch Gemini-6 from Pad 19 at 9:54 a.m. (EST) on Dec. 12, 1965. However, seconds after ignition, the first stage engine of the Gemini-6 launch vehicle shut down due to a faulty release of a liftoff umbilical plug.
