"Actual gravity-free process- ing of materials cannot be done on earth because weightlessness can only be generated for a few Dr. Wolfgang H. Steu- rer explained Thursday. "On its trip home Apollo will provide 6 hours of zero gravity." Steurer, who heads a team of scientists of the Convair Aero- space Division of General Dy- namics, said the Apollo experi- ment provided the first opportu- nity for processing a composite metal and viscose, a sub- stance with a vegetable matter base, under the ideal gravity- free conditions.

"To obtain the mixture, the astronauts will shake the cham- ber containing the prepacked apsule with the alloys in a lecified sequence of motions, is then cooled to solidify the new resulting metal." He said products which can- COUNTY OF VUICAN NO. 2 requires SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS The County of Vulcan No. 2 employs 89 staff members in nine schools.
