Well Gemini 6A and 7 didn't dock. They maneuvered within 10 feet of each other. The first real docking by NASA was another Gemini with the Agena target vehicle.-Deepspacecreeper (talk) 00:09, 19 November 2014 (CST)

Just a note: This tutorial is outdated. If you want to actually get the thing right for v0.21+, you need to change the Rockomax Brand Adapter on the top of the capsule to a Rockomax Brand Adapter 02. I tried the original design, and when I tried to use the parachutes, the lander can fell off and the crew died. Even after the alteration, the RCS tank will still fall off, but that isn't a big deal. Also, for the launcher, add two stacks of two Rockomax X200-32 Fuel Tanks with a Mainsail directly connected to the first stage, with struts for stability. As for the second stage, either cut it down to one fuel tank or change the Skipper to a Mainsail. Other than that, the maneuvers you need to do are correct, even though I had to use MechJeb to dock.

It's a wiki, feel free to edit the article when you want to. I also would recommend you to do it without mods - you won't learn anything from this tutorial when you cheat. --Crush (talk) 17:38, 4 January 2014 (CST)
Crush, I only followed the tutorial for the design. Jcx (talk) 17:29, 10 January 2014 (CST)
