  • Description

    A MEETING GROUND FOR RUSSIAN AND AMERICAN SCIENTISTS IS A SYMPOSIUM BEING HELD IN PARIS WHERE THEY ARE DISCUSSING SPACE PROBLEMS.

    ONE RUSSIAN SCIENTIST TOLD REPORTERS AT THE SYMPOSIUM TODAY (THURSDAY) THAT THE SPACE RACE BETWEEN THE TWO SIDES WILL EVENTUALLY DEMAND A VOLUNTEER FOR SUICIDE. ASKED IF THE SOVIET UNION WOULD CONSIDER SENDING A MAN INTO SPACE WITH NO CHANCE OF RETURNING, HE SAID "SUCH A FLIGHT COULD AND PROBABLY WILL TAKE PLACE, BUT THERE WILL HAVE TO BE AN ENTHUSIASTIC VOLUNTEER."
    RUSSIAN SCIENTISTS AT THE CONFERENCE SAID THEY AGREED THERE WAS STILL MUCH TO LEARN ABOUT THE POSSIBLE EFFECTS OF LONG PERIODS IN SPACE FOR A SINGLE COSMONAUT. AND THE SOVIET UNION, THEY SAID, HAD DECIDED "NOT TO RUSH THE PROGRAMME, NOT TO PUSH THE LIMIT."
    THE CONFERENCE IS THE SECOND OF ITS KIND IN PARIS. ITS FULL TITLE: THE SECOND INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE BASIC ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS OF MAN IN SPACE. IT COMES AT A TIME WHEN DETAILED PREPARATIONS ARE STARTING FOR MAN'S TRAVEL TO THE MOON AND BEYOND, FOLLOWING THE EXPERIENCE ACCUMULATED DURING FLIGHTS IN ORBIT ROUND THE EARTH.
