Recent advances in space science

March 1, 1963

The present rapid advance in space sciences, clearly apparent at previous semiyearly national meetings of the American Geophysical Union, was again in evidence at the Stanford meeting, December 27–29, 1962. A total of over 60 papers was presented by the Planetary Sciences Section, usually in sessions held jointly with other Sections, including Geomagnetism and Aeronomy; Meteorology; and Volcanology, Geochemistry, and Petrology. Two symposia, jointly sponsored by the American Physical Society, also included items of space interest, such as the atmospheric drag of satellites and the Mariner 2 probe observations on Venus conducted a few days previous to the meeting.
