Abstract

The present stage of development of vehicles for space exploration corresponds to some degree to that of the aeroplane in 1905. The programme of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration in the fields of space science research, applications of Earth satellites, manned exploration of space, and vehicle development are reviewed. International co‐operation in space exploration is desirable, particularly as regards exchange of information, exchanges of scientists, co‐ordination of national programmes, and institution of co‐operative programmes.
