Expert Asks Expanded U.S. Space Program


A Rand Corporation expert
called for an expanded U.S. space
program in a speech made herel
yesterday before the 14th National
Conference on the Administration
of Research.
Dr. Robert Buchheim, head of
the Rand Aero-astronautics de-
partment said "Our limits are de-
termined by our own choices,"
and urged a bigger and faster
space program that would put
U.S. astronauts on the moon be-
fore 1970.
Present government plans do
not call for manned flights to the
moon until the 1970's.
"We clearly possess physical
and human resources to support
a larger space program without
real interference with other acti-
vities," Buchheim said. "Limits on
the things we do are determined
more by our own choices than by
availability to basic resources."
Have Abundance
"We have an abundance of re-
sources and skills that the Soviet
Union does not have; if we fail to
use our resources, we lend cred-
ibility to our competitor's claim
that he has a superior economic
and political system."
Describing the serious political
effect our second-best position in
astronautics has had on the rest



of the world, Buchheim added that way can continue to do just what
