IOWA, TUESDAY, DECEMBER 3, 1974 EYE WRITTEN QUIZ ASSOCIATED PRESS I PI NEW YORK TIMES NIXON Jupiter Is Weathered, Saturn Next MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (AP) — Pioneer ll changed names Tuesday and headed for Saturn, after a perilous but successful confrontation with Jupiter’s deadly radiation. The 570-pound s p a c e c r aft dipped to within 26,600 miles of the surface of boiling, gaseous Jupiter at 9:22 p.m. PST Monday, coming three times closer than Pioneer IO a year ago and climaxing a 21-month, 620-mil-lion-mile voyage. At 10:24 p.m., scientists received a signal that the spacecraft had survived its close approach and was on its way to make man’s first probe of mysterious, ringed Saturn in September, 1979. “Fiery Mouth” “I officially rechristen this s p a c e c raft Pioneer-Satum,” James Fletcher, administrator of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration, said at a midnight news conference. “It flew into the fiery mouth of a dragon and got scorched a little, but now it’s headed for! Saturn,” said Robert Kraemer, I director of NASA’s planetary ex-! ploration programs. “Its a tough little bird and with a little luck it will make it.” Scientists threw up their hands in relief when they received a signal from the spacecraft after it successfully passed through Jupiter’s searing radiation. The signal came a little more than an hour after scientists lost contact with the probe when it ducked behind Jupiter and reached a speed of 107,000 miles per hour — 25.000 mph faster than any man-made object had ever flown. Minor Irregularities The spacecraft was operating normally after its encounter with Jupiter, although some minor irregularities were re- 2 Defeats For Mills In Caucus Nuclear Buildups Can Sjfjcg A$|($ Doctor for His Opinion Go On, Ford Admits WASHINGTON (AP) - The race” that would have cost the new U.
