Description


TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, October 29, 1963. Letter to J. Duane Upton, in part: "You inquire as to the space effort impact on the world of the future. Exploration in space, as in any other area, provides answers to old questions, but, perhaps more importantly, provides new questions. New questions are the basis for progress, and progress is the key to a better world in which to live." In fine condition. At this early stage in the space program, Armstrong had no idea that he was to become the first man on the moon. He had been selected as an astronaut only a year earlier, and underwent years of rigorous training prior to his first spaceflight, Gemini 8, in 1966. This exceptional letter offers an ideal example of the early, slanted version of Armstrong's signature, and its fabulous content further elevates its desirability. From The Bill Lende Collection.
