TUESDAY, MAY 6, 1958
UNITED STATES SENATE,
Washington, D. C. The special committee met, pursuant to call, at 10:30 a. m., in room 457, Senate Office Building, Senator Lyndon B. Johnson (chairman) presiding:
Present: Senators Lyndon B. Johnson (chairman), Green, McClellan, Anderson, Symington, Bridges, Wiley, Hickenlooper, Saltonstall and Bricker.
Also present: Edwin L. Weisl, consulting counsel; Eilene Galloway, special consultant; Dr. Glen P. Wilson, technical coordinator; Gerald W. Siegel, Stuart French, and Solis Horwitz, professional staff members.
Senator JOHNSON. Will the committee please come to order.
I am informed that we do not have microphones for the audience and therefore it is necessary that those of us at the table speak louder than usual if we expect those in the hearing room to follow us.
First of all, two of our most outstanding members are in a leadership conference at the White House this morning and will be delayed.
In view of the fact that General Doolittle's time is limited and he expects to leave for Europe after he completes his testimony here, we thought we should go ahead as scheduled.
I should like to ask the members of the staff who have worked on this hearing to please stand as I present them so that all of the members of the committee may know them.
Mr. Edwin Weisl, please stand.
Mr. Solis Horwitz and Mr. Gerald Siegel; Dr. Glen Wilson and Mrs. Eilene Galloway.
(Those named arose momentarily.)
We have a number of other staff members who have worked with us but who are not here this morning, and we are very grateful for the outstanding service they have performed.
We are here today to begin consideration of a bill which will create a Federal agency with the specific responsibility of guiding the Nation in the exploration of outer space. It will be printed in the record at this point.
(S. 3609, 85th Cong., 2d sess.) A BILL to provide for research into problems of flight within and outside the earth's atmosphere, and for
other purposes Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That this Act may be cited as the "National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958."
