TLS signed “William A. Anders,” one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, January 30, 1964. Letter to J. Duane Upton, in part: "The benefits to be derived from a program such as this are undescribable at this time. Knowledge gained thus far has opened the door to many mysteries, but no one can predict with accuracy what mysteries can and will be solved as a result of future space research and exploration. We can only hope that our efforts, and the results therefrom, will contribute to the betterment of all mankind as have the discoveries of other explorers and scientists down through the years." In fine condition. A remarkable letter in which Anders looks to the past and the future in evaluating the potential of America's space program. He would make his first and only spaceflight four years later on Apollo 8, becoming one of the first three humans to travel to the moon. From The Bill Lende Collection.
