- 570Kb PDF file containing a scan of a letter from Wernher Von Braun to Vice President Johnson, dated 29 April 1961, responding to a memorandum from President Kennedy to Johnson. Von Braun provides a personal assessment (rather than an official view in his then-capacity as director of NASA's Marshall Space Flight Center) of United States and Soviet capability. The analysis includes the opinion that the U.S. has "an excellent chance" of beating the Russians to a manned lunar landing, adding "with an all-out crash program I think we could accomplish this objective in 1967/68."
