But scientists told reporters at • news conference in connection with the meeting that, while the • objective is one Justifying intensive resenrch, the problem will be to find chemicals that would trap the sun's energy—and release it under controllable conditions. j One scientist said the Russians claim to have acnievea goou success in speeding springtime in the Soviet by spreading coal dust on the snow to trap rays of the sun.
