COURIER NEWS Exploring the moon Scientists have started design- Ing a space drill fo dig down into mysteries of the moon's surface. Carried up by a spaceship, the drill will be operated by remote control, with electronic systems messaging back what it finds. It isn't a simple challenge, for the moon has no air. Temperatures can range from 270 degrees Fahrenheit down to 184 below .zero. The drill must survive a bumpy landing, and cannot be very heavy. Scientists at Armour Research Foundation, Chicago, are wrestling also with questions of what kind of drill head to use, the best method of powering the drill, and how hard surface is. the moon's On the Fly Toads will only eat something which is moving. Then with a flick of their tongues, they corral their dinner. In the laboratory or home terrarium (a hofel for toads and such), they will eat bits of hamburger, carrots or even some breakfast cereals if the nonliving food is waved in front of them. This is tedious, so researchers designed a turntable or lazy Susan, putting food on the rim. The toads seize it as food goes by. If toads ride on the turntable along with the food, they still will eat. This indicates lhat movement of the background induces perception of motion in the toad. The story is told in Science by Walter Kaess, University of Connecticut psychologist, and Francis Kacss of Storrs, Conn., Grammar School. Astronomers can photograph about 10 billion slars. The wild boar was a lavorite game animal of European nobles because of its strength, speed and ferocity.
