Launch Abort of the Gemini 6 Mission

April 9, 2003
NASA attempted to launch the Gemini 6 at 9:54 a.m., December 12, 1965. However, seconds after ignition the first stage engine of the Gemini Launch Vehicle 6 shut down due to a faulty release of a liftoff umbilical plug. The launch was postponed to December 15.
