7129/A: SPACE: APOLLO 15 BACKGROUND

American astronauts David Scott, James B. Irwin and

Alfred Worden are all set for the launching on July

26th 1971 of the Apollo 15, America's longest and

most complicated moonshot ever. Irwin and Scott will

spend nearly three days on the lunar surface and

explore up to 28 square miles of the surrounding

territory thanks to their 31 million dollar "Moon

Rover" - the first passenger vehicle ever to operate on

the Moon.

SHOWS:

Irwin and Scott ride in vehicle.

They get off, pick up rocks, drill core sample.

Worden in command module, various shots docking probe.

Film of command module in orbit, animation showing module and lunar module together, side panel off.

Film of experiment package inside of molecule, CU special panoramic camera, sub-satellite taken out, instruments.

Animation, sub-satellite launched, orbits.

7024A: CAPE KENNEDY :EFFECTS OF THE SPACE RUNDOWN

Having spent 24 billion dollars on the Apollo programme

to get men to the moon, the United States

government is now beginning to scale down America's

space programme. NASA's budget has fallen from $6

billion in 1966 to a little over half that this year. At the

Kennedy Space centre, thousands have been laid off

and the local authorities are trying to promote tourism

to replace space as a revenue earner. Beaches and

inland waterways are being developed and at Orlando

a vast new pleasure ground, Disney World, is due to

open in October next year.

SHOWS:

Paine on latest NASA projects requiring fewer men.

SHOTLIST:

1. Long shot of hand holding canister

2. Long shot of petri dishes being lifted out of canister

3. SOUNDBITE (English) Fred Ahmay, NASA Researcher:

"When that time came we were made aware that they in fact did exist and had been recovered and we got an opportunity to see them and to our amazement they were virtually intact."

4. Mid shot of petri dishes from canisters

5. Mid shot of petri dishes being placed on table

6. Close up of petri dish being placed under microscope lens

7. Various of man looking into microscope

8. Close up of worms

9. SOUNDBITE (English) Fred Ahmay, NASA Researcher:

"Initially when we first received the canisters here at the hangar we were first focused on retrieving the autonomous temperature data lockers that we had placed inside which measured temperatures at various time in a role throughout the entire flight. We were concerned that those batteries had died or had leaked and would have hurt the integrity of the lockers so we merely opened up the canisters just enough to get the lockers out and to our amazement we down loaded them normally, still on flat battery power, and obtained some valuable temperature data from that. Then the following Monday which was last Monday whit our principal investigators present here at Kennedy we continued to open the brick 60 canisters. We retrieved the petri dishes which were the containment for the (inert gas) argon in which the worms lived. We were again amazed that every petri dish, still contained argon. We started to look at them under a microscope and immediately discovered we actually had live animals survive to the point that we got them."

STORYLINE:

Hundreds of worms from a science experiment aboard the space shuttle Columbia have been found alive in the wreckage, NASA said on Wednesday.

The tiny worms, individuals of a species known as C. elegans, were found in debris in Texas several weeks ago.

Technicians sorting through the debris at Kennedy Space Center in Florida didn't open the containers of worms and dead moss cells until this week.

All seven astronauts were killed when the shuttle disintegrated over Texas on 1 February.

Columbia contained almost 60 scientific investigations.

The worms and moss were in the same nine pound (four kilogram) locker in the mid-deck of the space shuttle.

The worms were placed in six canisters, each holding eight petri dishes.

The worms, which are about the size of the tip of a pencil, were part of an experiment testing a new synthetic nutrient solution.

The worms, which have a life cycle of between seven and 10 days, were four or five generations removed from the original worms placed on Columbia in January.

The C. elegans are primitive organisms that share many biological characteristics of humans.

In 1999, C. elegans became the first multicellular organism to have the sequencing of its genome completed.

C. elegans have two sexes: males and hermaphrodites, which are females that produce sperm.

A hermaphrodite worm can self-fertilize for the first 300 or so eggs but later usually prefers to accept sperm from males to produce a larger number of offspring.

The experiment was put together by researchers at the NASA Ames Research Center in California.

The moss, known as Ceratodon, was used to study how gravity affects cell organization.

During Columbia's flight, shuttle commander Rick Husband sprayed the moss with a chemical that destroyed protein fiber.

He also sprayed the moss with formaldehyde to preserve it. Seven of the eight aluminum canisters holding the moss were recovered.

The experiment was put together by an Ames Research Center researcher and Doctor Fred Sack at Ohio State University.

Monkey And Mice In Pioneer Space Flight

In a preview to human space flights, Air Force scientists launch Albert the Monkey and two white mice into upper pace on a 2,000 m.p.h ocket ride, an historic first. Films show the space travellers under zero gravity in this test of reaction to space flight, and their safe return to earth.

US Tests The Giant Saturn Rocket

The United States launched the rocket whose one-and-a-half million pounds of thrust is designed to carry aloft the Apollo capsule bearing a man to the moon within the next few years. The mighty Saturn, 16 stories in heighk is launched from Cape Kennedy and for the first time in the space race the United States has surpassed Russia. The rocket and payload total 562 tons and the 20.000 pound that is put into orbit is, by far, the heaviest space vehicle ever launched successfully.
