  • Description

    Russia's Luna-9, it seems, has served its purpose. An announcement from Moscow today said there'd be no more radio contact..Last night, most of the power in the batteries left over from the scheduled experiments was used up in a bonus transmission. But this it now seems was definitely the end -- the end at least of the scientific experiments not of the publicity - as our Moscow correspondent Eric de Mauny reports:
    This of course the scientists will have to work on. But until the Russians release the full results, a good deal of Western comment must speculation. One of the questions Tom Heaney put to Sir Bernard Lovell was whether the Russian success would lead to quickening of space activity.
