II Your birthday today: A year of transition from one- way of life to another lies be- lore you. Daily choices lead imperceplively, a hairc- breadth at a time, Into a whole other system of per- sonal habits. Today's natives generally suffer an uneven tamper which this year is under some testing. ARIES (March 21-Apri! Cut a definite line: no week- day work or shop talk this Sun- day, but full attention to pray- TAURUS (April M-Mny Be happy if things are a bit on the dull side. Take the oppor- tunity tor some solitary reflec- tions, reconsideration of goals. GEMINI (May 21-June You can't be sure of details in today's agreements, so leave yourself plenty of leeway, ex- Orbiting satellites Andy sends a complete 20- volume set of the World Book Encyclopedia to Todd Elson, age 12, of Enid, Oklahoma, for Ws question: What holds a satellite up? Sight now, several man-made satellites are orbiting the plan- et Mars. Others nave been or- biting the earth for no engines of any sort to push them around on their endless journeys. These man-made sat- ellites are held up by the same forces that govern the orbiting moon. The same forces also keep the planets from faliing into the sun and govern the wheeing stars of the Galaxy. m In tile 1600s, a student named Isaac Newton figured out Bw mysterious laws of gravity. He took the trouble to express them in simple terms, hoping to make it easy for everybody to understand them. But the mys- terious, invisibe florce is very complex and even scientists keep discovering new things about it. Recently they modi- fied their ideas about why a satellite stays up when gra- vity keeps pulling it down. However, these ideas did not modify Newton's old laws. We know that every particle ol matter has a minuscule quote of gravity. Massive bo- dies, such as stars and planets, are dense packages of par- ticles. Their gravitational force according to a strict ratio of mass and volume. The invisible force is .a puffing pow- er, exerted from the mass. It readies out, getting weaker at a fixed ratio as it extends out. Certainly the earth's gravity Is strong enough to pull down the man-made satellites, row -orbiting around it. Some of thn meteors it pulls down are big- ger and more massive than they are. But meteors are not protected by the certain some- thing that holds up the satel- lites and keeps the planets from falling into the sun. This something is a circling motion, delicately balanced et the right speed and distance. This used to be called centrifu- gal force, though the circling Waffle official fined BRANTFOED, Ont. (CP) Melville Watltins of the New Democratic P a r t y 's Waffle wing, was fined Thursday In provincial ajurt after being convicted of obstructing a police officer. Judge W. A, MacDonald rated that Watkins, 39, ob- structed police by not obeying an order to disperse after a breach of the peace had been committed Sept. 9, near the strikebound Texpack Ltd. plant. Watkins is a political economy professor at the University of Toronto. motton does not exert a force. It merely counteracts the pull of gravity. Gravity pulls down meteors because they are not in orbit. But if they swerve in along a curved, partial circle, their falling speed is delayed. If there were no gravity, a moving object would continue on at the same speed along the same path forever. A satellite is launched to offset the earth's gravity so that it can continue on and on under its own power. But to keep it above the earth, space scientists must compute the delicate balance between its orbit and the earths grav- ity. These precise ratios in- clude its mass and distance, its speed and orbit. When a satellite is launched precisely into orbit It counter-, acts the pull of gravity and stays above the earUi with no engine to keep it going. But if it veers doser or loses speed, gravity gets the upper band. The satellite winds clos- er and closer around the earth and finally returns home.

Maurice Strong, who -will head a UN Conference on the Human Environment in Stockholm June 5-16, thinks the meeting may produce a pledge by most na- tions to accept responsibility for the factors Brat impair environ- ment. Strong told a seminar at the United Nations in New York an- other outcome of the conference could be the establishment of a central agency "which would fink and Identify local and worldwide environmental prob- lems." "This will get a new sense of realism into the conduct of in- ternational the UN dip- lomat said, adding he believes cooperation by various nations hi the environmental area eventually will be translated into better political ties. About high-level repre- sentatives from 130 countries are expected to attend the meet ing in Sweden.
