Princeton Authority Denies Truth of Moon Trip Rumor
Princeton scientists do not contemplate a trip to the moon in the near future, contrary to a recent report by Columnist Dorothy Kilgallen in the New York Journal American.
Professor Daniel E. Sayre, chairman of the Department of Aeronautical Engineering at Princeton, quickly denied Miss Kilgallen's story which claimed that scientists had worked out the details on a rocket trip to the celestial body, Professor Albert Einstein had computed the necessary equations, and tests were planned for next summer.
"The Aeronautical Engineering staff at Princeton has so far given no direct attention to inter-planetary space travel," Sayre said. "As far as we are concerned most of us this summer are going to Cape Cod. Miss Killgallen," said he, "is a quarter century premature."
