1965 airstream space division

I bought a 1965 28 foot that came from Palm Beach. It had a logo on the side that has International Rockwell Corp. with either Space Division or NASA Division under it.
It has no kitchen or bath from the factory. Anyone know anything about it?

That is very cool.

NASA and Airstream have quite a history. They used a motorhome for transportation, several trailers as a quarantine trailer along with support trailers.

Your photos look more like equipment or support vehicles as seating seems slim to none.

There is even a trailer in the Smithsonian that was with the space program.

Quite a bit of info on Google "NASA and Airstreams.

What a great find, now how to preserve that fading sticker/decal.

The emblem looked to be painted on and was removed with stripper. The aluminum is etched but smooth. When I applied acid it revealed half of the letters I have put floeresent dye on it and put a black light on it but no difference.
Zoom in on the picture attached and you can see the letters I outlined with a pencil
The logo on top has nothing that I can make out and I can't find any old logos that fit that design
