To THE
CONGRESS
OF
THE UNITED
STATES:
I
am
transmitting today the Sixteenth, Seventeenth, and EighteenthSemi-Annual Reports
of
the National Aeronautics and Space Adminis-tration covering the period between July
1,1966
and December
31,1967.
The events recorded here are both tragic and encouraging
;
sobering
and
inspiring.The eighteen-month period saw success and failure and then successagain as
a
proud agency moved forward with renewed determination.The Gemini missions were completed
;
Lunar Orbiters
I
and
I1
trans-mitted thousands of clear pictures
of
the moon
;
new communicationsand meteorological satellites were orbited.Then came tragedy. Three brave American astronauts were killed
in
the Apollo fire.
Initially
stunned, NASA then went to work to overcome the flawsin the Apollo system.
Soon,
impetus was restored to this crucial part
of
our space effort. Other great space achievements followed such as theApollo
4
light.
I
commend these reports to your attention. They contain,
I
believe,concrete evidence that NASA
is
moving forward, and that America
is
contributing mightily
in
the worldwide effort
to
conquer space for thebenefit
of
all mankind.THE
WHITE
HOUSE,
Oct.
11,1968.
