Signature from the former NASA astronaut selected for the first planned Mars mission on a First Day Cover honoring the Viking Mission to Mars. Extremely rare!
First Day Cover Signed: "Brian O'Leary", in purple felt tip, 6½x3½. American scientist Brian O'Leary (1940-2011) was selected by NASA in 1967, being chosen as a member of the sixth group of astronauts selected that year. He was one of eleven scientists selected for the (eventually canceled) Apollo Applications Program, and was the first astronaut to be selected for a potential manned Mars Mission. The mission, which was projected for the 1980's, never came to fruition. O'Leary left NASA only a year later, and went on to a teaching career at several prestigious universities. In recent years, O'Leary has drifted away from orthodox science, and has studied more controversial ideas, like the relation between "consciousness and science". Corners lightly worn and creased. Toned on bottom right from previously affixed sticker. Slightly soiled, esp. on verso. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
