The Chicago Tribune Flashback The CANADIAN PRESS President Thomas Jeffer- s-on persuaded the U.S. Congress to pass the Embargo Act 166 years ago today in 1807 by for a all foreign commerce was for- bidden. .France and Britain were at war and between tney i paralyzing American seaborne com- 'merce. Jefferson believed the warring powers would abandon their decrees blockading each other. he was wrong and was forced to repeal the act four days before he retired from the presidency in 1809. 1952 The government an- nounced plans to establish a national library for Canada. 1935 Anthony Eden became Britain's foreign secretary. Ask Andy HARD TO OBSERVE Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the Merit Students Encyclopedia to Vin- cent age of Lahoma. for his What li the landscape of Mer- cury From the it is much easier to observe the face of though Mercury is much nearer .to us. This is because little Mercury is the closest planet to the sun. When it appears at dawn or usually mask- ed in the sun's dazzling radiance. In recent earth-bound astronomers have learned a few things about Mercury's landscape. But the details must wait until next when the spacecraft Mariner flies by for a close-up investigation. Most of what we know about Mercury's landscape has been estimated from its size and its place in the Solar System. Its diameter is 3.100 which is 38 per cent of the earth's. Though made of fairly dense its total mass is merely 6 per cent of the earth's. And the little planet orbits the sun at an average speed of 30 miles per second at an average distance of about 36 million miles. We or- bit at 18Vz miles per second at an average distance of about 93 million miles. These facts alone can yield a lot of basic information about conditions on the sur- face of Mercury. For ex- on Mercury a 100 pound earthling would weigh no more than 37 pounds. the daytime side of the small planet must be much too hot for comfort and the night side must be colder- than-cold. Until a few most experts assumed the day-night period to equal the yearly which is 88 earth-days. In this was corrected to 49 earth-days. Other new evidence suggests that if Mercury has an atmosphere it is hardly worth mentioning. In radio beams from the earth detected rough which suggest that Mercury's land- scape may be scarred with craters from fallen meteorites. According to most recent estimates. Mercury's daytime temperature soars to 570 degrees Fahrenheit and drops to minus 260 degrees at night. Mercury gets seven times more of the sun's blazing heat than we do. During the day the unprotected surface gets hot enough to melt tin and possibly lead. Our present knowledge of Mercury's landscape is rather but should not be for long. Last a Mariner spacecraft set forth to survey this region of the Solar System for the first time. With spiky antennas and solar panels extended like gauzy the little plorer somewhat resembles a celestial dragonfly. It will fly by for a close look at where it grabs a helping of gravity to boost it on to Mer- cury. If all goes well. Mariner will reach the neighborhood of Mercury toward the end of March and swerve around for a second look five months later. Among many other the spacecraft will relay back detailed maps of almost all the surface land- scape of Mercury. Mariner's telescopic TV cameras will begin mapping in late March. This work will stop for 30 when the spaceprobe swings around at about 625 miles above the planet's surface. Then its infrared radiometer will take accurate while its ultraviolet sensor checks for the atmosphere which may or may not be there. Other instruments will relay data on magnetism solar radiation and high energy particles that rain down on Mercury's land- scape.
