The flight plan was a summation of all the planned maneuvers, experiments, and spacewalks for Gemini XII, as well as detailing the time schedules for eating and sleeping during the mission.


Divided into three sections, the first describes the major tasks that each crew member had to perform at specific times, such as liftoff, rendezvous, and splashdown. The second section provides details on the tasks and experiments to be performed during the mission, including Stand-up and Umbilical EVAs, or "spacewalks." The third and final section is a complete timeline of the entire flight including rest and eating times for both Aldrin and Jim Lovell.
