    Well, the memo I cite was from July 1963 - I think it's not sensitive
    NOW, but we just haven't managed to find any surviving documents.
    The 1963-021 launch is an interesting idea - I thought the info we had
    on EROS was that it was a low orbit mission (1963-021 was planned for
    a higher 900 km orbit): the 'planned orbital lifetime' was 30 days
    and the USAF museum ties it explicitly to 'Discoverer'. So I think
    1963-021 is ruled out.
