, MARCH 12, German Rocket Maker Sees Satellite Circling Earth at Close Range By HOWARD IV. BLAKESLEK HUNTSV1LLE, Ala. IJf) — There will be no iron curtain anywhere if the vision of the maker of the terrible Oerman V-2 guided rocket comes true. The vision It a military space station, a tiny, man-made moon 1,015 miles up, which each day will ice every square mile of the earth's ; Inhabited surface, and the people jfctoovlng around as clearly as from Tm airplane at 5000 feet. The dreamer is Prof. Wernhcr von Braun, 39. He lives here and is taking American citlenshlp papers. v Satellite to Circle Earth The military satellite will circle the earth once every two hours. r t will circle from north to south, at nearly right angles to the earth's rotation. Its orbit is fixed, with the earth rotating eastward below. Thus if it comes down over New York City at 10:00 a. m., it will he on Ik next circuit do™ from the north somewhere over Denver nnd the West Coast. In 21 hours It will see everything oti Hie earth by daylight. Ami also it will cotne up each trip on the opposite side for a night view by radar. This will give it two looks a day at everything. The satellite iviii carry a telescope through which you can see a strip of earth more than 1.000 miles wide as clearly as if you were only 5.000 feet aivaV. Explanation Oivi-n [^Looking down you can see far Tenant's Loudspeaker Automatically Brings Heat from Landlord NEW YORK M>, _ Tenant Mel- vm A. Carter thought his apartment was getting too ccld too often. So he attached a thermostat to a record player with a lomispcak- er aimed down a dumba aiter shaft where landlord Clarence Cadogan could hear it. Every time the heat in the apartment dropped below 85 degrees, the loudspeaker blared: "Mr. Cadogan: Under Section 2'io ot the Sanitary Code, a landlord who does not provide 65 degree heat when the outside temperature falls below 65 degrees is liable to a SSOO fine or a year In jail. The temperature in this apartment is now below 65 degrees." Yesterday. Cadogan told Magistrate Paui Balsam the recording foiis driving me crazy." The magistrate ordered Cadogon to furnish sufficient heat. The landlord promised he'd do better than looking up from the earth's surface. If you want to see why, try looking through thin tissue paper at a printed page a foot behind the paper. You see no letters But lay the tissue on the page anrt you can read It. For the watcher on the satellite our oir Is the tissue paper, and it Is in contact with the earth. "You can see." Von Braun said, "men running around on the deck of a warship, atomic building projects, airports, troop concentrations, ships and Industrial development:. It will be the lden| observation post. "Shoot on the Target" "The satellite crew can drop guided missiles, right on the target." You shoot & winged A-bomb backwards from the satellite not very fast backwards, but enough so that it lags behind the satellite. The slower velocity causes the bomb to drop toward (he earth, and as it falls it accelerates. During all the long drop it is in sight of the satellite, and as it enters the upper air it is under radar control so that it can be guided to the target with men up above watching it hit. With a radar scope neither clouds nor night will prevent bombing.
