Description


ALS, one page, 7.25 x 10.5, personal letterhead, November 26, 1969. Letter to "Arthur" on potential space careers, in full: "Sorry about this short answer—we're busy these days! Engineering is better than astronomy for astronaut-pilots. We will be choosing more astronauts as the years go by—how many depends on how much money from Congress. Jobs of all descriptions are available at NASA—mostly engineering and scientific. There will be a scientist on the Mars trip. Ear infection not from spaceflight." In fine to very fine condition.
