be some small concern on the ground about the buildup of water in the fuel cell system The system which joins hydrogen and oxy gen to harvest electrical current produces water as a byproduct and it is stored in tanks The tanks are filling up Conrad was told that the tightest constraint from here out in the flight would be the storage space for the water Another minor concern was the hydrogen and oxygen supply remaining to keep the fuel cells going Its kind of tight said Gem ni Control but you got it there On the Gemini 5s 68th orbit Conrad reported one of the more spectacular sights of our flight It was just before sunset with the suns rays streaming from behind the spacecraft when either the hydrogen or oxygen tanks vented gas into the super cold void of space It stars looked like
