OP, while I am in no way questioning that that is a letter you received, I do find the grammar and wording suspect.
It just does not sound official, the terminology, the return address...I don't know, just doesn't seem right.
Perhaps someone wanted your family to believe it was a letter from NASA and faked the letter. Maybe your Uncle himself?
I am inclined to agree. There is a certain style to the OP and that style and grammar is carried out in the letter. On top of that the other issues
I'd have are:
*Why would someone use an "old account" that hasn't been used in 4 year. Most people would cancel that account, not keep paying for it although I
might consider it was an account still being used by the spouse with a different email account.
*The "uncle" begins with "Daniel, it's your uncle" as if he wouldn't recognize who it came from. If I sent a letter to my mother I wouldn't
begin with "Mom, it's your son".
*The uncle states there is some shocking news there was an accident then goes on to say that he is fine now. At this point there is no reason not to
say what happened like he was injured in a fall, lost a finger, etc.
*The focus too quickly shifted from the 'Hi it's me and I've had an accident' to the anyway here are some pics. You've got a chance to connect
with someone to tell them you are ok and no one, not even yourself knows where you are and that is all he can say? Not buying it.
*The "NASA letter" clenched it for me with that writing style and grammar.
