  • Description

    SOVIET COSMONAUT YURI GAGARIN TOLD SPACE SCIENTISTS LAST NIGHT (SATURDAY) THEY WOULD HAVE TO FOLLOW ASTRONAUTS INTO SPACE TO ADVANCE COSMIC RESEARCH.

    ADDRESSING THE FOURTEENTH ASTRONAUTICAL CONGRESS IN PARIS HE SAID SCIENTIST WOULD HAVE TO CARRY ON THE EXPERIMENTAL WORK SO FAR UNDERTAKEN BY THE COSMONAUTS BECAUSE "MAN CANNOT BE MULTILATERAL - HE CANNOT KNOW EVERYTHING."
    MAJOR GAGARIN - FIRST MAN TO ORBIT THE EARTH - WAS PRESENTED WITH THE GALABERT ASTRONAUTICAL PRIZE. LIEUTENANT-COLONEL JOHN GLENN, FIRST AMERICAN TO MAKE AN ORBITAL FLIGHT, WAS TO HAVE RECEIVED THE GALABERT PRIZE AT THE SAME TIME BUT COULD NOT BE SPARED FROM OFFICIAL DUTIES.

    THE SOVIET COSMONAUT WAS MOBBED EARLIER IN THE DAY WHEN HE VISITED A LEFT-BANK HOUSE WHERE LENIN LIVED BEFORE THE RUSSIAN REVOLUTION. WOMEN RUSHED THROUGH THE CROWDS TO KISS HIM ON BOTH CHEEKS, WHILE OTHER PRESENTED HIM WITH FLOWERS AND A BOTTLE OF PERFUME FOR HIS WIFE.

    THE INTERNATIONAL ASTRONAUTICAL CONGRESS WAS TOLD THAT DAY, THAT AMERICAN AND SOVIET SCIENTISTS ARE WORKING ON WAYS OF PROTECTING COSMONAUTS AGAINST FATAL COSMIC RADIATION - ONE OF THE MAIN PROBLEMS OF A FLIGHT TO THE MOON. DR.KONECCI, OF THE U.S. NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE ADMINISTRATION (NASA), SAID AMERICAN SCIENTISTS WERE STUDYING RADIATION EFFECTS ON THE LARGEST MONKEY COLONY EVER ASSEMBLED IN THE UNITED STATES. STUDIES WERE ALSO BEING MADE ON HUMAN CELLS PLACED ABOARD DISCOVERER SATELLITES.
