Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 28, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 1971 The LUhbrtdqs HeraM Unmanned spacecraft near Jupiter Ntw Ywfe TtBMt Service NEW YORK After a 2J- 600-rallUon-mlle voyage from the fint into me ooter reaches of the solar Pioneer 10 is within 5.8 million miles of Jupiter and streakinf in fait for man's first clow-up aminaUoo of the planet that is so massive and turbulent that it is sometimes considered the stillborn twin of the sun. The 570-pound spacecraft is schedotedd to make its closest approach to might Jupiter at p.m. on Dec. 3. Pioneer 10 is targeted to fly within miles of the planet. But already the spacecraft's instruments are sensing the of the planet. Pioneer 10 has already penetrated within the orbits of the outermost of Jupiter's 12 moons. Under the increasing influence of Jupiter's the spacecraft is gathering now approaching at 000 miles an hour and ex- pected to reach miles an hour during the closest fly- by. The launched from Cape on March carries 11 scientific instruments and all are reported to have survived the long journey in working order. Pioneer 10 was the first man-made object to fly through the asteroid belt between Mars and finding it less of an obstacle course than had been feared. An object of beauty and Jupiter is times the size of a fluffy ball of gas with mul- ticolored stripes of slate salmon and yellow. Its great red floating in the southern is considerably larger than the entire earth. Pioneer 10 is expected tc transmit 340 images of Jupiter and 10 images of its four largest planets. The resolution of the images will not begin tc compare with the pictures from Lunar and Mars mis- sions. The smallest objects that should be visible in the images would be about as big as the state of Connecticut. The following questions will be uppermost in the minds oi pioneer 10 scientists as the data come streaming in from the spacecraft during the next two What is Jupiter made Despite Jupiter's great it has a mean density of which is only slightly greater than water and one-fourth oi earth's density. From this knowledge and from telescopic scientists have speculated that Jupiter may be nothing more than a big ball of gas. It probably does not have a surface in the sense that the inner planets have. It may have a small rocky core. But maybe not. This has led to the assump- tion that Jupiter is composed primarily of hydrogen anc helium a composition of UK lightest elements much that of a star in par- similar to the sun. This is one reason for specula- tion that jupiter may be a that never got started.' Other constituents of the Jo vian atmosphere are believec to be ice crystals and water. Pioneer 1C instruments are expected tc define more clearly the com- position of Jupiter's upper cloud layers. What is the Great Red A huge oval about 30.00C miles long and miles the spot appears to float about the atmosphere in the southern hemisphere like a bulging red eye. It seems tc vary from brick red to faint and occasionally it dis- appears. No one sure what this all means. 'Some scientists suggest that the spot is ar enormous column of stagnant gas bobbing up and down. Others speculate that it is a raft of solid hydrogen floating on a bubble of warn hydrogen. CP Rail fined for pollution Alaska CP Rail has paid the state 000 in fines for smoke emissions from the tounhip Princess Patricia.
