UNDER the auspices of the Gassiot Com‐mittee of the Royal Society a conference on rocket exploration of the upper atmosphere was held at Queen's College, Oxford, on August 24, 25 and 26. The majority of the papers pre‐sented were concerned with the instrumentations and techniques for physical measurements con‐cerning the atmosphere, but in addition there were some papers which outlined the develop‐ment of the high altitude sounding rocket, first using modified V‐2 rockets and then new vehicles constructed specifically for high altitude research.
