Space probe
explores comet

From the Associated Press
MOSCOW - Jubilant scientists
hailed a Soviet spacecraft's encoun-
ter with Halley's comet yesterday as
a space triumph and said early data
indicated smooth sailing for probes
that will venture even nearer next
week.
The pictures provided the closest
look at a comet and were believed to
be the first view of a comet's icy
core.
Television monitors showed color-
enhanced images of a fiery red-
brown center, believed to be the
nucleus, surrounded by wide bands
of yellow and blue. The core is
believed to be about 2% miles in
diameter.
"It is a triumph; it is truly a
triumph," said Fred Whipple of the
Smithsonian Astrophysical Obser-
vatory in Cambridge, Mass., one of
many foreign scientists monitoring
the mission. "It's the first time in
history we have had this sort of
imaging system this close to a
comet."
Whipple hypotesized in 1950 that
comets had solid cores in what
became known as the "dirty
snowball" theory.
When asked whether he thought
the images from Vega 1 supported

his theory, he replied, "I think so."
Vega 1 is the first of five probes
scheduled to fly by the comet in the
next eight days. Data from the
missions will take months to analyze
and are expected to provide an un-
precedented glimpse into the origins
of the universe.
U.S. astronomer Carl Sagan called
Vega 1 "an emissary from
humankind."
"What a pleasure it is to see the
nations of the world that are in com-
petition - and occasionally hostile
- on other issues able to work
together so competently and warmly
on this," he said.
Sagan said Halley, who was a
navigator, "would have appreciated
the navigational finesse that was
required to come so close to the
comet."
Some of the most useful early data
came from the only U.S. experiment
aboard, a "dust counter"
engineered by John Simpson, a
physics professor at the University
of Chicago.
He said he was nervous because
his invention had never been tested
in space and "there were all kinds of
possible problems. There weren't.
There was beautiful cooperation."

"Eating out" could soon be easier
than "eating in" thanks to a new ser-
vice that will deliver food from a
number of local restaurants right to'
your doorstep.
The Hungry Wolverine, which is
scheduled to being business today,'
will offer cuisine from Rax, Taco Bell,
Red Hot Lovers, The Brown Jug,
Kana, Lefkowsky's Deli, Olga's, the
Bagel Factory, Jason's and Dunburi.
WHEN students call the service to
place an order, Wolverine staffers wil
lthen call the restaurant, pick up the'
food, and deliver it anywhere within a
two miles radius of their South University
sity office. The service also offers a'
free item with a purchase of five
dollars or more.
Most restaurants agreed to
paticipate in the service to increase
business, though some are just ex-
perimenting with the idea of a
delivery service. The eateries are
aiming for the dormitory market, "to
get them off of the pizza trend and on
to something else," said Tom Black-
burn, manager of Red Hot Lovers.
Mostafi Eshraghi, manager of
Olga's, said the service will increase
his sales "on a daily basis, and
especially during finals."
Brian Nelson, founder of The
Hungry Wolverine, also owns two

other delivery services in the Big Ten
- The Hungry Badger in Madison,
Wisconsin, and The. Hungry Spartan,
in East Lansing, where Nelson said he
could barely handle the volume in the
first week.
Nelson is looking to franchise his
chain of services this September. He
has plans for future expansion, in-
cluding a business in Columbus, Ohio
this April. "We're looking at locations
all over the country," Nelson said.
Nelson began by delivering Mc-
Donalds, and then branched out to in-
clude a greater variety of restauran-
ts. Nelson said that they key to his
success is the variety of food which he
offers and the fact that there is a large
market available.

Councilmembers agreed that the
victim should be able to appeal if the
central coordinator decides not to
pursue the matter.
Under the council's working draft,
after a dangerous situation is repor-
ted, a central coordinator would
decide within 48 hours whether to im-
pose temporary sanctions. Within two

weeks, the University would decide
whether to drop the matter or to hold
a hearing.
The council defines a dangerous
situation as a violent act, including
arson, or the threat of such an act.
They have not yet decided whether the
University should deal with such non-
violent crimes as theft or civil
disobedience.
