It is an honor and privilege for me to participate in this Congress, a meeting of persons from all the world devoted to the purpose of bringing to accomplishment that which has so long been only a vision of a few gifted men, the exploration of space by mankind. To explore space to gain knowledge of the physical universe in which he lives; to explore space as a demonstration of his mastery of advanced technology; to open space to his own travel to satisfy his desire to see and experience for himself; to explore applications of space technology to improve worldwide communications and weather forecasting—all these aims reflect as in a mirror the desires of men everywhere.
