Message to the Congress Transmitting the First Annual Report Under the National Aeronautics and Space Act.
February 2, 1959

To the Congress of the United States:

Transmitted herewith, pursuant to Section 206(b) of the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958, is the first annual report on the Nation’s activities and accomplishments in the aeronautics and space fields. This first report covers the year 1958.

The report provides an impressive accumulation of evidence as to the scope and impetus of our aeronautical and space efforts. Equally impressive is the report’s description of the variety of fields being explored through the ingenuity of American scientists, engineers and technicians.

The report makes clear that the Nation has the knowledge, the skill and the will to move ahead swiftly and surely in these rapidly developing areas of technology. Our national capability in this regard has been considerably enhanced by the creation and organization of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

The report sets forth a record of solid achievement in a most intricate and exacting enterprise. In this record the Nation can take great pride.
DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
