DURING the past year (the Advisory Council stated) we were asked to consider the question of British participation in space research and, in particular, a proposal originating with a group of Fellows of the Royal Society led by Professor H. S. W. Massey, that the United Kingdom should embark upon a programme of scientific experiments in the upper atmosphere and in extraterrestrial space, by means of a series of earth satellites launched by vehicles developed from British military rockets adapted to this purpose.
