Scope and Contents

In Our moon and other moons, the earth's moon and other satellites in space are discussed by Joseph M. Chamberlain, Catherine E. Barry and Frank H. Forrester, astronomers at the AMNH-Hayden Planetarium. The instruments used to study the solar system are presented, the short film Moons of Saturn is shown, and Copernican theory is discussed. (The first space probe to the moon was landed by the Soviet Union in September 1959 and the first man stepped on the moon on July 20, 1969.) In Invertebrates, Ralph Buchsbaum, professor of zoology at the University of Pittsburgh, examines microscopic views of one-celled invertebrates. The Simplest animals, a film of underwater creatures by Buchsbaum, is shown.
