Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 15, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Milky Way explosions baffling N.vtmbtr 15, 1972 THE LETHBRIDOI MCTAIO Si By WALTER SULLIVAN New York Times Service NEW YORK Reports re- ceived from observatories in various parts of lie world indi- cate that four explosions of a seemingly unprecedented nat- ure were recorded in Septem- ber within the Milky Way Gal- axy, or star system, of which Ba-th is a nart. In recent years extremely vio- lent events have been detected in distant parts of the universe, challenging astrophysicists for an explanation. However, apart from the rare stellar explo- sions, or supernovae, no such outbursts have been observed common, but hitherto unrecog- nized occurrence within the Milky Way, this may provide a tool for understanding the distant ones and their energy source. The first outburst was record- ed by radio astronomers at the so close by. I University of Toronto on Sept.

A check of observatories this week has re- vealed that, all told, four tuch events occurred before the month was out. The observations were made by radio telescopes, by the world's largest operating opti- cal telescope (on Mount Palo- mar in and by a variety of other instruments in- cluding x-ray scanners aboard three earth satellites. The lat- ter included one of the Penta- gon's "watchdogs" for nuclear explosions. So extensive were the obser- vations and the speculations as to their meaning that the entire Oct. 23 issue of the Bri- tish journal, Nature Physical Science, is devoted to such re- ports the first time one issue has been devoted to a single subject. Each explosion manifested it- self in the form of radi emis- sions from a gas cloud expand- ing at about half the speed o( light. The emissions were typical of those from electrons gyrating wildly within the mag- netic fields of an expanding cloud.

HOW ABOUT SPINACH THAT TASTES LIKE POTATO CHIPS? By VIRGINIA WAHHEN New York Timrs Service NEW BRUNSWICK, N.J. Meals eaten away from home, whether voluntary (say on an airliner) or involuntary (a wor- ke-'s are increasing at Biich a rate that they arc mak- ing up the fastest grownng seg- ment of the food industry. And with these meals the consum- er has only a certain amount of leeway in trying to achieve good nutrition.
