[i]The meeting looks to have been about hashing out the details of the new mission. Like usual, most of the interesting stuff is redacted, so there's not much to go on in terms of specifics, but can at least make out some general concepts. As of this meeting, it doesn't look like an actual launch date has been set, though the launch site has been moved (1) to Vandenberg Air Force Base in Santa Barbara (2). The availability of Saturn V, the rocketship used in all the previous moon missions, seems to be a factor in the launch date (3). NASA is working with the Soviets on this, so they must know what's going on (4). They need to transport something big and secret from the Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama to the Santa Barbara site (5). Considering MSFC is NASA's original home and hub for all things space travel, it's hard to say what that big thing is (it could even be the Saturn V itself). They are concerned about the public getting wind of this, as it could be very dangerous (6).[/i]
