Crash halts research
MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. (.' - The destruction of a unique flying
laboratory in a two-plane crash will have "very serious effects" on
National Aeronautics and Space Administration research programs, a
NASA official said yesterday.
The $5 million four-engine Convair 990 was packed with more
than $1 million worth of scientific equipment when it exploded into
flames Thursday after colliding with a Navy aircraft above a golf
course while approaching the Navy's Moffett Field.
A joint NASA-Navy investigation was announced yesterday to
determine cause of the crash which killed 16 scientists, technicians
the crew aboard the planes and critically injured one man. A Navy
admiral said human error appeared to have been at fault.
"It will have a very serious effect on our program," said Dr. Hans
Mark, director of NASA's Ames Research Center here.
"It was one of the major programs at Ames. It hurts our pro-
gram badly. We do not have another aircraft to carry on its work. It
was unique,"he added.
The craft - named "Galileo" after the pioneer astronomer -
participated in a join U.S.-Russian survey of the Bering Sea last
month. It measured the sea's temperature, salinity, roughness, the
age of ice and water in the atmosphere. It was scheduled to chart
the patterns of whales and other sea mammals.
"It would be impossible to go ahead with the project that stems
from Bering Sea exploration with the Russians," Mark said.
As NASA's only Convair 990, "Galileo" was used to chase solar
eclipses, chart atmospheric and ocean currents and to develop pro-
totype instruments for use in aircraft and spacecraft.
Rear Adm. Herbert S. Ainsworth, commander fleet air wings,
Pacific, told a news conference at Moffett yesterday:
"Some one made an error, of course. It does not ,appear to have
been a mechanical malfunction. There was no indication of any trou-
ble in either plane prior to the crash."
He said both planes were under tower control at Moffett when

a challenger will win the required

without censorship. This has created a dilemma for cable operators.
Cable subscribers in a few cities are being offered late-night
"adult film festivals" that occasionally present X-rated fare. One
system recently showed the controversial film "Deep Throat,"
But the main problem has been raised with public access chan-
nels, notably some fare carried over New York's Manhattan system.
The association's board, meeting here this week, adopted a reso- I
lution noting the "apparent conflict between current regulations and
laws prohibiting censorship and the legal obligation to prevent the
transmission of obscene materials."
The Federal Communications Commission recently announced itj
will hold a closed-door inquiry into possible broadcast of obscenity by
cable TV systems and by television stations.
The industry's board resolution endorsed the pre-screening of
material on access channels to eliminate "offensive" programming.
