    Description: Infrared reflection spectra have been recorded for a large number of inorganic and organic samples, including minerals and biological specimens, for the purpose of interpreting the 3- to 4-micron spectrum of Mars. A previous suggestion that the Martian bands indicated the presence of carbohydrates is shown not to be a required conclusion. However, no satisfactory explanation is advanced and the problem remains unresolved.

    Description: The feasibility of interstellar flight is discussed. Mathematical equations for single-stage and multistage rocket propulsion are developed; velocity data and transit times are presented. The conclusions indicate that interstellar travel is theoretically feasible by utilizing known staged nuclear-energy systems.

    Description: Historically, hydroponics is not a new field; plant physiologists have known and used it for some 100 years. Inevitably, some enthusiasts got carried away.Claims were made of enormous potential yields; skyscraper tops were said to be capable of producing enough food for all of their occupants; and closets, basements, garages, etc. were wishfully converted into fields for hydroponic culture. Numerous publications on the subject appeared during this period. Basic requirements for hydropinc techniques are given along with examples of where soilless culture has been used commercially.

    Description: At present, there are several models involving the surface, atmosphere (and ionosphere), and cloud conditions of the planet Venus which attempt to account for the observed high brightness temperature of 600 degrees Kelvin in the microwave temperature region. None of these models can be definitely accepted or rejected on the basis of presently available data, and it is the goal of the microwave radiometer experiment planned for the Mariner Venus mission to determine which of the proposed models most nearly approximates Venusian conditions. The disc of the planet will be scanned at 4 wavelengths - 4, 8, 13.5 and 19 millimeters - to measure the temperature distribution across the planet. Measurement accuracy is expected to be to within 2 percent. In addition to the study of gross thermal characteristics of surface and atmosphere (or ionosphere), some information regarding the fine-scale thermal variations will be obtained. Since Venus appears to be continuously covered by clouds, it is obvious that only in the microwave region can one be sure of penetrating clear to the solid surface. Because of the absorbing characteristics of the Earth's atmosphere, and because of the relatively poor resolution obtainable in this region of the spectrum, one is forced to utilize the platform afforded by a planetary flyby or orbiter in order to conduct a reliable high resolution study of the planet. To do so from Earth (neglecting terrestrial atmospheric attenuation ) would require colossal radio telescopes.
