I am also requesting documents relating to the ownership claim of the Vanguard satellite, as well as any documents or reports sent by the NASA History Program Office at NASA Headquarters regarding the value and historical relevance of the satellite. Finally, I am requesting the documents sent to the Office of Chief of Staff, NASA Headquarters, regarding the ownership of the satellite.
