"Our astronauts have now flown 17 manned space missions, during which they experienced 3215 man hours in space flight...Through this investment we have obtained new products, services and knowledge; we have enhanced our national security; we have improved our international relations; and we have stimulated our educational system. Our Nation is richer and stronger because of our space effort. I recommend that America continue to pursue the challenge of space exploration."
- President Lyndon B Johnson, in a report to Congress, 1-17-69
