That's amazing. Where did you got that ? Bellcomm memos on NTRS never truly recovered from Frank "Blitz" Wolf 2012 criminal stupidity...

Presumably from archive.org which has a fairly decent set of copies of NTRS (vague attempt at British understatement here as I checked at some point the full number of report copies ;) ) https://archive.org/details/NASA_NTRS_Archive_19790072226

Bellcomm was an unusual entity. They seem to have produced advanced planning documents that--I think--had almost no influence on actual planning. So there's neat stuff in their reports, but it should not be considered to be part of the conversation at the time.

Whoever wants to dive more into Bellcomm, there is a lot more Bellcomm material at the Smithsonian at Udvar-Hazy.

Wow, thanks. This is exciting information. I began researching information about the lunar program for several weeks. But there is too much information yet.
