- EVA time 5 hours, 30 min. All primary objectives and most secondary
objectives were met. Docked maneuvers were canceled due to a
propulsion anomaly during Gemini Agena target vehicle (GATV)
insertion. The GATV was not placed in a 555.6km orbit because its
attitude control gas was depleted by earlier maneuvers.
