Exploration of the planet earth planned By STEPHEN SCOTT Cinidltn Press Staff Writer Man, who has walked on the moon and peeked at distant planets in dramatic space shots is the recent past, will launch next year what may be the most significant experi- ment of of the planet earth. The United States plans to launch an earth resources sat' in March as the world waits to see whslhw it will be a forerunner that will lead the way to a better life for man- kind. The concept of such a satel- lite is exciting. S'jentists say that it is conceivable that a device whizzing around r the earth will be able to detect such things as wteat rust in crops, mineral deposits be- neath the surface, schools of fish In the sea airi pollution in. livers and oceans. Underdeveloped countries see the satellites as their hope for the future as they attempt to bring their nations into the 20th century with a decent standard of living.

The Apollo astroriauis scored their most notable suc- cesses 1'his year with success- ful lunar landings which greatly enlarged the store- house of knowledge for scien- tists attempting to unravel the mysteries of the origin of the moon, the earth and the solar system. The Soviet Union also scored a success in linking up two satellites to create the first manned space station. But ttie cosmonauts had trou- ble and three died in June their space craft sprang aleak.

An unmanned Luna IB zipped toward the moon, but later crashed on the sur- face during an attempted Sept. Luna 19 started a successful moon orbit flight. Also in 1971, Britain became the sixth country to launch its own satellite, sending a scien- tific payload into orbit.
