In gestation is the space shuttle, a rocket plane that will operate like an airliner, making countless trips into orbit and opening (lie portals of space to men and women of many nations and walks of tourist fo scientist. CO-OPKKATION HKGI.NS Between fikylah and the shuttle there will be perhaps tho most significant flight of joint orbital mission in 1975 by American astronauts and Russian cosmonauts, Tho Impact of this symbolic meet- ing of Apollo and Soyuz crews can only be speculated on, but it could herald greater co-op- eration in many fields be- tween the two powers. Perhaps one uE Apollo's greatest contributions was the awareness it gave man oE the limitations of his own planet. To see earth as a complete and closed ecological system floating in the blackness of space an emotional .shock to many, They realized just how frag- ile earth is, protected from the scaring radiation of the sun only by a 400-miIe-tnick atmosphere. Tho picture of a marble-like earth relayed by Apollo 8 helped foster a .surge in popular interest for a cleaner environment, for bet- ter management of natural re- cources and (he preservation of the ecological balance. The question was raised: Shouldn't we take a substan- tial portion of the space dollar ajid devote it io earth-related problems such as pollution and providing for a growing population? After Apollo 17, Skylnb will begin pioneering in that direc- tion. Skylab Is a two-storey labo- ratory, with the volume of a medium-sire house, which is to be launcher! unmanned by I n Saturn V rocket next April i 30.

A preliminary plan calls for two or three Americans to launched in a modified craft iido .1 170-m i I c -h i y h orbit. A day or two later, two cosmonauts will bo launched in a Soy .ship. After a tJay of rendezvous manoeuvres, the two vehicles would execute the historic hookup. l''or two days Ameri- cans and Russians will trans- fer between the two ships. They Ml conduct joint experi- ments, possibly in earth re- sources, The two ships will disen- KURQ and for several days conduct separate, perhaps co- ordinated, experiments. The major motivation for the flight is 4o test a common docking system being built for both vessels. If It works ns expected, all future Ameri- can- and Soviet-manned ships will have this system, ena- bling a craft from either coun- Iry to fly to the rescue of a space vehicle in case ot trou- ble. Officials of both nations see (he flight a means of im- proving the political climnle on earth as a symbolic awareness of problems on the planet Hint can perhaps lies I he solved by co-operation, eliminating costly duplication. H is hoped the mission will lend to an International space laboratory In which sev- eral nations would partici- pate.
