DONALD K. SLAYTON
Mercury/Apollo astronaut on communication between astronauts and ground control.
Typed Letter Signed: "D.K. Slayton" as President of Space Services Inc. of America, 1p, 8½x11. Houston, Texas, 1987 December 22. To Bill Moore, Salem, Oregon. In full: "Regarding your concerns about losing contact with the ground while in space and not being able to return, that is not a real problem. We are able to do sufficient re-evaluation and have adequate projections of desirable re-entry paths that a sage entry can be made without any help from the ground. In other words lacking communications is not the equivalent of being stranded in space. Thank you for your interest." Slayton, one of the original seven Project Mercury astronauts, was aboard the 1975 Apollo/Soyuz joint mission, his only space flight. He did not go on a Mercury mission because of a heart murmur. He died in 1993. Fine condition.
