-Junior Editor Quiz on- SATELLITES Daily Times Herald Features OUT OUR WAY By NIG COCHRAN OUR BOARDING HOUSE . . . wltli . . . MAJOR HOOPLI QUESTION. When was the first satellite launched and what holds them up? ANSWER: A man-made satellite, released from a rocket high up in the thinnest part of the earth's atmosphere, must have enough circular velocity to provide centrifugal force. This force, pushing outward, just balances the force of gravitation which tends to pull the satellite down. Balanced like this, a satellite can whirl high up around the earth for a long time. Our present jSpace Age began when, on October 4, 1957, the first man-made satellite, the Russian Sputnik 1, was launched "into space, orbiting the earth until January 4, 1958. We illustrate the American Satellite Telstar, sent aloft by Bell Telephone Laboratories in 1962, which can receive TV signals from the U. S., amplify and rebroadcast them so they can be picked up in England. Many other satellites, are now orbiting the earth. By 1968, a group of ,63 nations were cooperating in the use of 5 satellites to transmit signals across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Another, separate group of satellites (24 in 1968) is also orbiting the earth, being operated by the U. S. Department of Defense. (Chris Holm of Duluth, Minn., wins a prize for this question.
