Lethbridge Herald (Newspaper) - February 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 20 - THE IETHBRIDGE HERALD - Saturday, February 24, 1973 YOUR HOROSCOPE By JEANE DIXON SUNDAY, FEB. 23 Your birthday today: Adjustment is the main struggle of the year coming up. You must change external reality to fit your aspirations. Today's natives are dexterous, and likely to seek out some very rare vocational specialty. ARIES (March 21 - April 191: Discretion should be your main concern as you limit your public appearances to what is expected of you by community custom. TAURUS (April 20 - May 20): Economies should be taken in stride even where changes are involved. Those who offer advice have their own values in mind. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20): Now you have to disregard hints and subtleties - o ftihere is a real objection to what you do, you'll hear it. CANCER (June 21 - July 22): Nothing is going quite as planned, so it's just as well not to have many specific commitments or a tight schedule lined up. LEO (July 23 - Aug. 22): Much of what you expect isn't there or doesn't happen. You may have to assume leadership in ceremonies normally conducted by others. VIRGO (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22): Getting extra people into arrangements generates difficulties. Neither make nor accept promises this Sunday. LIBRA (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22): Close collaboration with others, is full of quirks and difficulties -make your own path, let them take theirs, for later reunion. SCORPIO (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21): This Sunday taxes your patience sorely, as things seem to take forever to happen and people perversely seek all the wrong answers. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. Ask Andy Radio to the moon Andy sends a complete 20-volume set of the Merit Stu-dents Encyclopedia t o Charles M. Jones, Jr., age 13, of Gastonia, North Carolina, for his question: How does radio travel through space to the moon? This Miracle is demonstrated every time a lunar mission transmits conversations and TV pictures from the moon. Actually the radio that makes this possible is a natural phenomenon that belongs to the universe. It has been broadcasting through space since time began. The miracle is in how inainkind has learned to use it to carry sound and visual signals, for example, between the earth and the moon. The lunar missions were crowded with drama that none of us will ever forget. No doubt the greatest moment occurred an July 20,1969, when the astronauts of Apollo 11 landed on the moon. Commander Neil Armstrong set up a capsule TV 6tation and fixed a lens to the 'camera. Moments later, his spoken message readied the sets in our living room. W e saw the leg of the LEM, Eagle, and the plaque that reads: "Here men from the planet Earth first set foot on the Moon." That miracle was transmitted by radio - by waves of electromagnetic energy that traverse the vast reaches of space - with no trouble at all. Radio Is related to infrared rays and visible light, ultraviolet, X-rays and gamma rays. All of these are forms of electromagnetic energy that combine botfc electric and magnetic fields. All of them fan out from a source, traveling in straight lines at the speed of light. All are powered by their own energies to cross through space. The phenominal cosmic travelers are grouped together as electromagnetic radiation and neatly charted on the electromagnetic spectrum. The various catagories are based on wave lengths, which range from short gamma waves measuring 250 trillions of an inch to radio waves, some of which are measured in miles. Near the center of the spectrum is the skinny band that belongs to the short waves of visible light - the only form of electromagnetic energy that our senses can perceive without mechanical assistance. Next to this band are the slightly longer wave lengths of infrared, microwaves, and radar. Then come the longer waves we use to transmit radio and TV signals around, the earth - and way on out into space. Actually, radio waves travel silently and invisibly. All sorts of elaborate equipment is used to harness them to carry and deliver our messages. Radio and TV broadcasting stations generate and transmit powerful carrier radio waves. Coded signals are added to them as extra electrical impulses. These too travel silently and invisibly. They are captured by antennas and relayed to receiving sets which decode the signals back into audible sounds aid visible pictures.
