Dear Mr. DiGregorio:

Thank you for contacting the Vice President concerning the Mars Sample Return (MSR) project. I welcome this opportunity to respond on his behalf.

We recognize your interest in this matter and believe that all opinions, objections, relevant information, and comments from the general public should be taken into account. Certainly, your views merit careful attention; and you can be assured that your correspondence has been brought to the attention of the Vice President and the appropriate members of his staff.

In addition, I encourage you to continue to take advantage of every opportunity to make your position known to the appropriate officials at the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, which has jurisdiction in this matter. By doing so, you can ensure that they are aware of your circumstances and responsive to your needs.

Again, thank you for turning to this office with your concerns.
