Description


Three items: a TLS, one page, 8 x 10.5, NASA letterhead, November 27, 1973, to Mrs. Barbara M. Greenwood, in part: "It seems like a decade ago when I saw you at the Cape. How time flies and situations change. I am happily employed here at Ames, as the Chief, Systems Studies Division. We do systems analysis for aeronautics and space programs, and we have a strong influence on future directions in both areas. I have people working on studies from VTOL transportation systems to Shuttle Payloads. The work is very exciting and, frankly, I'm glad to be here. I think we cannot avoid a long dry spell for manned space flight in the near future. Shuttle is several years away, and there is very little happening until it flies. In the meantime, there is a lot of ground work to be completed to insure that the Shuttle really does its job"; an official color 8 x 10 NASA lithograph of Worden in his white space suit, signed in black felt tip, "Reach for the Stars, Al Worden, Apollo 15"; and a color satin-finish 8 x 10 photo of Worden in his white space suit, signed in blue felt tip, "Al Worden, Apollo 15." In overall fine condition. From The Bill Lende Collection.
