  • Description

    On Friday, April 19, an important report is to be made at the Kitt Peak (near Tucson, Ariz.) Conference of the American Astronomical Society.This report, by Drs.Martin Schwarzschild and Robert Danielson of Princeton University, is expected to announce "very exciting" findings involving the possibility of life on the planet Mars.The findings are based on data recorded in last month's flight of Statoscope II, a balloon-mounted telescope that soared above 98% of the earth's atmosphere.

    Your news wires undoubtedly will carry spot coverage of the Kitt Peak announcement, summarizing the Statoscope II report on Mars.The attached newsclip is sent to you in advance for optional telecast:
    (1) Thursday, April 18, the day before the report is made public, to "set up" the story expected on Friday, or
    (2) Friday, April 19, coincident with the announcement of the Mars findings, or in any later newscast.

    If you use the clip, Telenews would appreciate your courtesy in returning the enclosed postcard, so we may be guided in planning similar background service to you in the future.
