Gemini 7 was a 1965 manned spaceflight in NASA‘s Gemini program. It was
the fourth manned Gemini flight, the twelfth manned American flight and the
twentieth manned spaceflight including Soviet flights and X-15 flights above

the longest manned space flight in U.S. history until the Skylab missions of
the 1970s, and held the record for the longest space flight until Soyuz 9 in
June 1970.
