6 - Tuesday, Mar. 17, 1959 Redlands Daily Facts Discoverer I Lost, Presumed To Be Dead WASHINGTON <UPI> — The Defense Department said today that Discoverer 1, the first earth satellite to be launched into a pole to pole orbit, is lost and presumed dead. Roy W. Johnson, director of the department's Advanced Research Project Agency, said Discoverer's death "must be assumed" because it is no longer sending radio signals and efforts to track it with radar, failed. The 19-foot. 1.300-pound satellite was launched Feb. 28 from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. It was described at the time as the forerunner of satellites which one day will carry a man into space. , For nearly fi\'e days.-Discoverer I's fate was uncertain because of the sporadic nature of its radio signals. But on March 5 its orbit was confirmed officially on the basis of 41 tracking reports from stations in Alaska. Hawaii, and the United States. Presumably the satellite descended into increasingly dense parts of the atmosphere and was burned up by air friction. Its lifetime had been calculated at around 30 days. Apparently it lasted only about half that time. The Russians had objected to Discoverer's launching on grounds that it was a military satellite and not a satellite put up under terms of the International Geophysical Year agreements. Moscow Radio said the U. S. launched Discoverer "to perform espionage services."
