The information should assist in the execution of two basic functions: 1. The initial design of trajectories and mission plans that are within the capabilities of the combined/spacecraft. 2.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
