Spies and Shuttles

Contrary to the image that NASA has been involved only in in open and peaceful activities, it has a long history of hidden and frequently classified interaction with the national security agencies in the spaceflight and related fields. These relationships were often mutually beneficial, but at times restrictions were imposed on NASA's activities to protect national security. NASA often objected to these restrictions, but in most instances national security interests prevailed. The existence of NASA's close ties and relationships with the CIA and DoD in certain areas and the details of others are still shrouded in secrecy, even from NASA's earliest days. As more information is declassified, the world will gain a fuller history of this remarkable organization.
