Description


Rare autograph statement, signed "Roger B. Chaffee, Lt., USN," one page, 8 x 10, January 22, 1964. In full: “I believe that if history repeats itself as far as technological advancements are concerned, then even the men of vision of today will truly be surprised at the impact our space program will have on the not too distant future generations.” In fine condition. Although Chaffee sadly perished in the Apollo 1 fire, this letter foretells the enormous impact of America's space program which he would not live to see. Between the direct development of innovative technologies by NASA and the inspiration brought about by space exploration, future generations have benefitted enormously by the work of Chaffee, his fellow astronauts, and all the engineers and personnel that made America's space program enormously successful. From The Bill Lende Collection.
