[stamped, OCT 16 1959]
I had an interesting and productive session with Clark Randt and the Kety committee. I think it certainly would help them and us to have an airing of the scientific side of man-in-space, but if we do this we should ask him to sit in. There certainly are some valid objectives and I think SSB can help to sort this out.
The Kety committee also seems to have some pretty sound views on the role of exobiology and should be encouraged in pushing them.
