Blytheville Courier News (Newspaper) - July 19, 1962, Blytheville, Arkansas Blythe Ville courier news VOL. 58—NO. 71    BLYTHEVILLE,    ARKANSAS, THURSDAY, JULY 19, 19R2    18 PAGES    6 CENTS Venus Spaceship Scheduled Begin Journey Saturday By HOWARD BENEDICT CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. <AP> —With a successful balloon shot in the record books, the nation's space agency now takes dead aim at Venus with an interplanetary spaceship scheduled for launching Saturday. An Atlas-Agena B rocket is set to blast off before dawn Saturday to start a Mariner I spacecraft on 226 million mile journey to probe mysteries of the cloud-shrouded neighboring planet. ! Scientists and technicians labored Wednesday to ready the rocket and payload as another group launched a 135-foot diame-I ter balloon to a point 992 miles in space to test ejection and inflation techniques tor an improved ! Echo communications satellite. *    *    ti The balloon, folded in the nose of the Thor booster on launching, separated and inflated successfully at an altitude of 230 miles and | soared upward to its planned ‘.ra- j jectory peak before falling back ' to burn up in the Earth’s atmos-j phere, as planned, 23 minutes after launching. * • • Project officials watched the inflation flight and burnup of the i giant sphere on closed circuit tel- 1 evision -clayed from a camera mounted in the Thor nose. The National Aeronautics and 1 Space Administration reported complete .success of the mission and said it plans to launch one I of the 13-story spheres into orbit in the fall as an experimental pas-| si vc communications satellite to be named Echo II. I    ♦    • • The    balloon, largest    but    not heaviest manmade vehicle ever ; launched into    space, is    35    feet | taller and much more rigid than I the Echo I balloon placed in orbit I two years ago. Echo II will help determine i whether this passive type satellite or an    active    repeater    type    like Telstar is the most feasible for an operational space communications network. In contrast with Wednesday’* brief flight. Mariner I is intended to make a 4'2-month journey across the vastness of space before flying close to Venus in early December NASA hopes to send the spaceship within 10,000 miles of Venus to unravel some of the secrets hidden beneath its thick cloud mantle.
