On Gemini 5, flight duration was longer and astronauts Gordon Cooper and Charles Conrad circled the world 120 times in 190 hours and 55 minutes, returning with dramatic color photographs of the surface of the Earth. The astronauts reported a new awareness of the fragility of the planet and its atmosphere. They made photographs of prominent features for research use in geology, geophysics, geography, and oceanography, providing inspiration for the growing environmental movement ( 'Everybody is interested in the Earth we live on. The astronauts' photography just brought it home visually. Nobody could ever draw or paint it. I think their missions will live forever through photography,' believed Les Gaver, former photography director, Public Affairs, NASA (Schick and Van Haaften, p. 13).
