observations of the satel lite while one of them said he was shocked at the complacent attitude he said he recently en countered in the Midwest con cerning Russias satellite launch ing feat A statement that Bussia may soon have station on the moon came from Aleksandr Aleksan drov rector of Leningrad Univer sity His comment was made in a statement to the Soviet govern ment newspaper Izvestia which was broadcast from Moscow No details of the proposed moon station were given Presumably it would be some sort of an auto matic unmanned station Commenting on the Russian plan Dr J Allen

is very definitely in the realm of present possibility he said adding that a satellite would have to be launched into space at seven miles a second to reach the moon compared with five miles a second to orbit around the world The problem he said would be in the controls to aim the satel lite at the moon and enable it to land there isithout destroying it self There has been considerable speculation the Russians might at tempt a moon rocket Nov 1 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Bolshevik Revolution It was Dr Hynek who said he was shocked at complacency in the Midwest The complacency he said
