Change in the Space Age
Edinburgh: University Press, 1972 - SIGNED BY NEIL ARMSTRONG. 24 pp. Photographs. Original plain wrappers and blue printed dust jacket. Fine. Neil Armstrong presents his Change in the Space Age to the leading expert on UFOs. An outstanding presentation copy inscribed by Neil Armstrong: “To J. Allen Hynek & Family. We’ve enjoyed our voyage together. May it not be the last. Neil Armstrong Eclipse ’73.” First edition. Armstrong, Hynek, Isaac Asimov, and Scott Carpenter were among the speakers and guests on the Canberra, which cruised off West Africa in 1973 to view the solar eclipse. The recipient, J. Allen Hynek (1910-1986) was the most famous American authority on UFOs. He was the top scientific adviser on UFOs for the United States Air Force in the 1940s and 1950s, and he was a professor of astronomy at Northwestern University until becoming an independent researcher. Hynek began his career as a skeptic and a debunker but eventually came to believe that UFOs were extraterrestrial visitors. He was long a fixture in popular media. This talk is Armstrong’s Mountbatten Lecture delivered at the University of Edinburgh on 10 March 1972. Armstrong begins by surveying the history of exploration from Marco Polo and Columbus to the great 19th century explorers and the Space Age. In the second half of the lecture he discusses space-based communication, the development of communications satellites, and their military and peaceful applications.
