Greetings All:

As of July 26, 2002, I shall depart NASA after nearly 12 years as the Chief
Historian. It has been a wonderful experience–NASA has made quite a lot of
history over the years and the work of helping to document it has been most
rewarding. But I am moving to an exciting new opportunity at the National
Air and Space Museum, one of the great institutions of the world dedicated
to collecting, preserving, and disseminating the history of flight. I am
pleased to work in such an outstanding institution with such an
exceptionally fine set of colleagues. Beginning Monday, July 29th, should
you need to do so you will be able to reach me at the following address:

Dr. Roger D. Launius

Division of Space History

Smithsonian Institution

PO Box 37012

NASM Room 3560, MRC 311

Washington DC 20013-7102

Voice: 202 357-4406

Fax: 202-786-2947


Thanks for all of your support. If I may be of any service please feel free
to call on me.

All the Best,

Roger Launius
