V- fisssiipi S Stt? These sketches Illustrate how the Russian satellite got up and stayed up. At left Is a cross-section of a satellite-launching- vehicle n three-stage pencil-shaped rocket. The job of the launching: vehicle is to carry the satellite (in the no.se of the (hird-slape rocket) Info space and release It. The first stage of the rocket carries the assembly up- ward, burns off and falls. The second stage sends the remaining assembly still higher. Guidance mechanisms turn the vehicle as the second stage burns itself out and falls away. After a coasting flight in an arc roughly parallel to the earth's surface, n third stage ig- nites, eventually burns out and frees the satellite. Now in Its orbit, the satellite continues to circle the earth at a speed estimated at miles an hour. A radio transmitter in- side tte satellite sends signal information to earth. Experts estimate the satellite will whirl around the earth until atmospheric "drag" slows it down. When this happens, it will fall out of Its orbit and disintegrate.
