Wednesday Evening, December 4, 1957. Russ Scientist Claims Great Gains in Cosmic Ray Study Editors Nolc-. The fallowing dispatch has been written exclusively for United Press by one of Russia's foremost scientists. He is Dmitri ShcW-'Itsyn, since 1951 director of the Institute of Physics in the USSR Academy Sciences. By DMITRI SKOBELTSYN (Written For United Press) MOSCOW (UP)— The year Iflfj? has been marked by two major events in the history of Soviet science, particularly :m physics. One was the creation and launching of the first and second Sputniks which caused a stir throughout DAZZLER—Princess Margaret is shown dazzling students at the North Staffordshire university college in Keele, where she danced in this very low-cut gown. The gown is of ice-blue satin, (International) the world. The second concerns a completely different set of problems_ and is also of international importance I refer to the commissioning of the 10 billion electron volt proton-synchrotron or accelerator at Dubna on the outskirts of Moscow. Last April the acccl^ erator, the only one of its kind in the world, produced proton j particles with a record energy ofj 10 bev (billion electron voltsi. These are in effect artificial cosmic rays. The particles provide science with new tools for delving deeper into the secrets of the atom':i nucleus. To obtain them, it was necessary to build a tremendous ringshaped electric magnet weighing 36,000 tons. - Better Than Ours The giant new accelerator surpasses two similar installations Derating in the U.S. in size and energy of its particles. It is a great landmark in the histo-y of science. And the launching of the two Sputniks opens new paths for science. Complex machines such as the accelerator are being built to study the phenomena in a field that may be called the "micro- vyorld" — a world of. inconceivably small space and time. This is the world of the recently discovered particles of matter, the so-called mesons, typerons and "anti-particles." On the other hand, the appear- streams' intensity. Distorts Picture Observations carried bout:by instruments r in the atmosphere are inadequate because, even 'the comparatively thin atmospheric .layer which separates these instru- | ments from cosmic space distorts-j the entire picture in many ways. | This is where the Sputniks i come in.' By penetrating beyond! the limits of the atmosphere into eosmic space they have opened up entirely, new vistas for cosmic rsearch. The first observations of th cosmic rays by instruments in Sputnik II hav already been received and will soon be deciphered and studied. The past and future observations of cosmic rays and other radiation in cosmic space are only the beginning, and only part, of-an extensive program of scientific r'ese.arch which the Sputniks will make possibe. ' In the future, and perhaps net too distant future, we will be able to test a number of physics problems of fundamental importance such as Einstein's general theory of relativity.
