National Security Council, NSC 5814, “U.S. Policy on Outer Space” Analysis Exploring the Unknown: Selected Documents in the History of the U.S. Civil Space Program . Ed. John Logsdon, Washington D.C. NASA History Office, 1995. vol.1, 345- 359. Source: Presidential Papers, Dwight D. Eisenhower Library, Kansas. Before President Dwight Eisenhower signed the “National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958,” the Eisenhower administration constructed an initial statement of the United States space policy after the successful launchings of Sputnik I and II. The document was formed under the support of the National Security Council with the help of the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics, a group which had been created by the White House to direct NASA, once the Act had been signed. This statement on U.S policy of outer space was finalized and sent to the National Security Council for discussion on June 20, 1958, just one month before President Eisenhower approved the formation of NASA.
