The February Object of the Month exhibit of the MIT Institute Archives and Special Collections includes a letter written in 1961 by Charles Stark Draper, Director of MIT’s Instrumentation Lab (now the Draper Lab), to NASA volunteering as a crew member on the Apollo mission to the moon.

The Object of the Month is also displayed in an exhibit case across from the Archives, Room 14N-118.
