Request for aid in study of short-lived phenomena


  • Anonymous


The Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, sponsored by the Earth Resources Technology Satellite Project and in cooperation with the Smithsonian Center for Short-lived Phenomena, has embarked on a combined earth-space program to study short-lived events by means of the ERTS 1 satellite.

The program is designed to determine the detectability of large-scale earth events from space platforms and the amount of critical information obtainable from satellite photographs.
