Despite the partial failure scientists were heartened by some valuable data they were receiving from the experiment, whose revolutionary techniques may some day guide man to the moon and beyond. ' , + + + | WHIRLING around the globe every 91 minutes were the 1,400- pound Agena space platform and :he complex 675-pound piggyback payload named Ranger I. They were very close together in space, in orbits ranging from 105 to 312 miles above the earth. It was at first thought they had failed to separate and were locked together 'in their spins around the globe. However, analysis of radio data showed the pair of space travelers apparently did kick apart. The mystery was why Ranger did not fly into a gigantic, cigar- shaped orbit covering a million miles each round trip. ONCE IT SETTLED into orbit, the Agena was intended to fire its big engine for 1% minutes to accelerate the speed from 17,400 to about 23,800 miles an hour. Then Ranger was to break away on its high-flying course. Best estimate is that the Agena engine ignited only briefly, then shut down inexplicably. When Ranger received the ignition cutoff signal it apparently separated automatically—hut its speed had not been increased by the suspected brief ignition and it continued on almqst an identical orbit path as Agena. slightly in front. Agena was the second stage of a 102-foot Atlas-Agena rocket which roared away from a launching pad at 5:04 A. M. and climbed into a starry sky. IT WAS ONE of the Cape's better shows. In the chill air of the upper atmosphere, where the rocket entered the rays of the rising sun, its vapor trail blossomed into a cloud shaped like a monstrous snake, with a white head, blue body and orange tail. A short time afterward, National Aeronautics and Space Administration officials announced that the rocket worked well. After the bulky Atlas ignited at the right time to inject itself into orbit at 17,400 miles an hour. Then, after coasting for several minutes, Agena ignited a second time. That new -burst of power was to have increased the speed to about 23,800 miles an hour. IT WAS at that point that a springlike device was to kick Ranger into an orbit taking it about half a million miles out at the farthest point, to study conditions in deep space. Until they study radio reports from the spacecraft, test officials won't know why it failed to happen. After Agena fired the second time, radio contact with the vehicle was lost, and the thought arose that the whole space package might have fallen into the Atlantic. MORE THAN two hours later, however, Ranger's radio signals came in loud and clear at a Goldstone, Cal., tracking station. Listeners there hadn't expected to hear from the Ranger satellite until hours later, when it was to have been over California on its journey into space. The signals showed that Ranger was in a close east-to-west orbit and had crossed the Western coast on its first trip around. Principal purpose of the shot was to test techniques for launching vehicles to the moon, Mars and Venus. If it had succeeded, an effort might.have been made to land an instrument package on the moon with a similar rocket early next year. American motorists use more than 55 billion gallons of gasoline annually.
