Abstract:

The U. S. is said to be ahead of the USSR in space. The initial U. S. lack of large boosters caused it to think small and resulted in highly sophisticated techniques as the inbalance was redressed, the same techniques permitted the U. S. to do more with a given weight than the Soviets. More important, however, is what the U. S. has done with the capability now in existence weather information generated by the satellites trans-Atlantic telephone calls via satellite photographs of Mars effects of weightlessness learned during the flight of Gemini 7. Text of 15-minute talk given to the Science Club of Beverly Hills High School on Jan. 17, 1966.
