ALS signed “Jack Lousma, NASA Astronaut, Skylab II,” two pages, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, January 24, 1974. Letter in response to a gentleman’s questions about his flight and future missions. In part: “I have recently returned from the 59 day flight of Skylab II. Our objectives included a thorough study of the sun, the earth, and its resources, and man’s medical reaction to long space flights…My future plans include training as a back-up crewman on the joint US–Russian flight in 1975, and then the development and flight of the space shuttle in the late 70’s. I am confident that in a few years, when Americans fully recognize the benefits derived from the space program, critics of our efforts in space will be relegated to the same place in history as those who said, ‘It will never fly, Orville.’” In fine condition. Pre-certified Scott Cornish and RR Auction COA.
