.y, JULY 19. 1930 • When Mare 'Visits' Earth July 27 Will Find Planet "Neat- Earth Scientists Say By NBA Service .Science Is aiming its "heavy / artillery" right smack at Mnrs Oils month — and waiting. Only the weapons'lire not • camion, but telescopes: And Mars Is not llic threatening symbol or war, but the i'lanel. • . . Science believes In "firing when you see the whites of their eyes." On : July 37, -Mare; will be "looking" at the earth from n distance of no more than 36,030,000 mites. . Astronomically speaking, {lint's about as far as the house across the street. Mrirs hasn't come as close .since 1924, won't approach as iieai- again for many years Sometimes the planet Is 248,000 000 miles distant; \yas- almost that in June, 1938, In fact. It all, happens like this. Mars and the earth travel about the sun in different oitlts at- different, speeds.. Sometimes Mars is on the other side of the sun from the earth; often it's off at. an angle But, In late July, tlie earth will be directly between Mars and the sun. CHANCE FOK RESEARCH Astronomy's armies don't plan a military - expedition to Mars- they just want to look at It. They advise the , public not to lose steep ' a Martian invasion like that in; last year's Orson Welles "horror Broadcast." In the first place, they don't even knew whether Mars is Inhabited. . Secondly, although )ight will travel. from Mars to the earth in 193 seconds as the worlds approach each other, It would take n rocket- ship much longer. "Nearness of the planet, however, may enable scientists to make new .discoveries with, their long- range leriscs and photographic plates. They'd like to know more about'•'• the planet's geographic makevip, get a better look at those canals discovered by Giovanni Schiaparelli in 1817. To . earth-dwellers, Mars is a huge' star which shines with a red glow. But let's take a look at it as you would at the receiving end of a' telescope. ; Now the color is a- deep orange. At one end is an elliptical, yellowish ar'en-fliie of the polar ice caps which-grow an.d diminish with the seasons. Summer^ts' Mars now, shrinking. the northern ice cap,'leaving, the''southern cap predominant. A bluish green, elongated patch starts .Just beyond thi? ice cap and continues to the cqualor. There is a.smaller patch near the eijn.itor. Belief is thai, these ' are areas of ' '.vegetation. The rest,'of the planet is-probably desert, accounting for •the reddish hue.- ' " Apparently-melUng ice and snows of-the-polar, caps provide the lone - source ' of';\yater. It seems logical thai .moisture from the caps should .roll down;over the planet, reviving vegetation. .CANALS". MAN-MADE? But : about those canals — some •scientists even deny their existence. In-1924, - However, astronomers did sight some fine lines, forming a sort of network on Mars. Because most of these lines do not bend, like a river but follow a. rather straight course, the late Percival •. Lowell contended that they were canals .'constructed by living beings and used for providing necessary irrigation throughout the: planet. If there is life on Mars, the Inhabitants must be much different than we are. Living conditions would resemble those in our stratosphere, 18 miles above tile earth's ygEVILLE, ;(ARK,X, COURIER NEWS Osceola Society — Personal , Presbyterian Auxiliary Msels Mrs. w. J.
