Plane Strayed The United States .says the un- armed air force transport was shot down by Soviet fighter planes and crashed near the Turkish frontier, after had Main Goal Cosmic Study Cape Canaveral, The United States put into I orbit today anew "gyroscope" satellite expected to answer many questions about spaca and weather. The satellite, named Explorer VII was put alott with a power- ful Juno II rocket fired here at a.m. EDT. In Washington, the national space agency announced at p.m. that "Explorer VII is in orbit." Completes Orbit The satellite had completed one complete orbit around the earth shortly before the announcement, an agency spokesman said. Weighing 91V4 pounds, the satellite's main goal is to study cosmic radiations, knowledge of which is a key to space travel by man. The 76-foot rocket rose ponder- ously from its launching pad. It accelerated rapidly and, after about 40 seconds, arched high in the sky and headed toward the northeast, spurting a brilliant tail of fire. A minute later it vanished in a cloud bank. If all went right, all tour stages would ignite in about 13 minutes, sending the payload into space at speed of miles an hour. Twenty-five minutes after launching it was announced that all four stages of the rocket fired successfully and performed ac- cording to plan. Second Shot It was the second space shot of the day from the cape. Earlier, a B47 bomber launched a 37-foot Bold Orion missile, aiming it at a point 10 miles in front of the explorer VI "paddle wheel" satel- lite. At the time the satellite was at 160 miles altitude in the low point of its orbit and traveling at repeated U.S. inquiries have failed to get any satisfaction on what became of the other 11 men aboard.
