Thank you for your Oct. 19 article on the space and rocket lag. Many thoughtful Americans agree that this is an emergency of alarming immediacy.
We Americans have more than once shown our mettle. We must convince our leaders that we are not afraid to face facts and work and sacrifice if need be to preserve our nation and invigorate our championship of the free world before the Russians win the space race, the cold war and the allegiance of the uncommitted nations.
