mighty new space rocket prob ably designed strictly for space flight purposes The Russians are systemat ically going about answering the crucial medical question of mans performance in space to answer especially some of their worries about the wasting away of human bodies and life processes in weightlessness They likely have or are developing the ability to reach the moon and return and to place in

an offi cial announcement said Some scientists abroad considered this historic first one more big step in the Soviet race with the United States to the moon The United States plans to launchits first Hworman vehicle some time early next year There was no indication how long the space craft its size and weight not given would remain aloft But the official Tass pews agency said this first manned orbit by the Sovi et Union since the summer of 1963 was designed to test the effects of weightlessness and other stresses on man on a long flight This was a hint the craft might break the old rec ord

Forces manned or biting Secretary of Defense Robert S McNamara last Dec 10 or dered the Air Force to develop such a laboratory He called the project an in surance program Co prepare the United States to send space warships aloft ifthe need should arise The firstmanned flight of the US manned orbiting laboratory is clue in late 1967 or early 1968 to be preceded by a year with the first unmanned test launch of what will beknown as the Gemini X Capsule The US orbiting laboratory would contain at least two men It would be shot into orbit by a huge Titan III rocket cur rently under development The Titan HI will develop about 2 million pounds of thrust Essentially th e manned or biting laboratorycoupled with other related research will pro vide greater knowledge about mans ability to function for ex Unded period in space McNamara inannouncing the project stressed that the need for a military space i mission still is not clear However the Air Force long has envisioned a wide variety of mission for military space ships These could include space stations for photographic recon naissance of the earth a manned spy satellite equipped with cameras as well as radar electronic ferrets to tap radio communications and heatsensing infrared devices to watch for missile launchings space craft could be used to inspect unidentified and suspicious satellites passing over the US and if necessary shoot them down Space ships with men aboard could relay radio and television messages andmight be able to intercept or foul up enemy radio communication In the field of weather manned
