Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 8, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta %S - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Thursday, February 8, 1973 Funnel assembled Workmen in an armoury near Albany, N.Y., assemble the parts of a giant funnel that is to be used to trap particles of cosmic dust, and direct them down inio three *mall "dustbins". The aparatus is to be lifted into the *kies over Australia by a large balloon. Canada-Li.S. seek cosmic dust data By GLEXNIS ZILM OTTAWA (CP) - Canada and die United States are working together in a fantastic dust-gathering project that scientists hope may provide some information about how the sun and planets were formed. The cosmic dust from the outer atmosphere is really micro-meteorites so small hundreds would fit on the head of a pin, explained Romeo Wlochow-icz, an astrophysics engineer at the National Research Council here. He designed the $5,000 dustbin, containing three radio-controlled boxes with one-inch collection pans on which scientists hope to collect up to 10,000 micro-meteorites of a special size. Part of the problem is that single micro-meteorites large enough for their composition to be determined can be collected only over a long period at an altitude of about 80,000 feet. Large enough would be between 50 and 200 microns, he said in an interview Tuesday. A No energy crisis oil official OTTAWA (CP) - "There is no energy crisis," D. B. Furlong, managing director of the Canadian Petroleum Association, declared Tuesday. "Not in Canada, nor in my opinion in the United States or in the world." He told the Canadian Institute nt International Affairs a crisis exists only in the sense that energy prices are increasing. "Despite the furor in the media, we don't have a crisis in the sense of a short-or long-term srortage of energy." Mr. Furlong said Canada has 21 years of oil reserves and 36 years of gas reserves already discovered, plus whatever exists in promising areas like the Arctic and off the East Coast. He said energy has, for a long time, been sold at low prices because of excess supply. "The fact that energy costs ' are at last going to ri.c:c to catch up with the way wages and manufactured goods have been rising in recent years does not constitute a crisis." He said that if Canada conserved energy by cutting off exports to the United States, the Canadian consumer would lace sharp price increases. A text of the speech was released before delivery. micron is one-thousandth of a millimetre - and it takes 25.4 millimetres to make one inch. From the chemical composition of these tiny particles, scientists believe they can learn about comets, astroids and gas clouds and, possibly, about how the sun and planets were formed. SIZE THE PROBLEM Scientists at Dudley Observatory in Albany, N.Y., have been studying larger and smaller meteorites, but getting space dust particles of just the right size had been a problem, Mr. Wlochowicz said. Then they came up with the idea of a sky funnel, which was to be towed through the atmosphere by a balloon. Dudley scientists, working under director Curtis Hemenway, designed and built the funnel, the U.S. National Centre for Atmospheric Research provided the giant balloon and Australia provided a launch site at Oakey army air base, 100 miles from Brisbane. The funnel is five storeys high and 25 feet in diameter at the top, tapering down to the one-inch collection plate in Mr. Wlo-chowicz's dust box. It was launched-on a tow cabe 500 feet behind a 65-foot balloon Jan 29 and now is on a 20,000-mile, 25-day journey eastward over the southern tips of South America and South Africa and back to Australia, where the dustbin will return to earth by parachute. The eight-pound collection device was built at the NRC astrophysics branch. The three separate bins for collecting samples at different times during the flight are moved in and out under the funnel by radio signal. The dust collected will be shipped to Albany and Ottawa, where, the first time, space dust of this size will be examined in detail. Honor inventors WASHINGTON (AP) - President Nixon was designated next Sunday, the birth date of Thomas Edison, as Natonal Investors Day "in recognition of the invaluable contribution of inventors to the welfare of our people." Nixon's proclamation, requested by Congress, said the United Slates "great and complex challenges at home and abroad demand further progress and new technology." FEW TREATED JAKARTA (AP) - About 100,000 Indonesians have leprosy, but only 70,500 of them have registered for treatment, i the health department said. GIFTS TO WIN THE HEART OF SOMEONE VERY SPECIAL!
