WEATHER
SATELLITE
The
National
Aeronautics
andSpace
Administration
will
launch
a
new
version
of
its
TIROS
weather
satellite
no
earlierthan
Jan.
19
from
Cape
Kennedy,
Fla.
The
new
satellite,
designatedTIROS
I
(eye),
will
roll
along
its
near-polar
orbit
much
like
a
cartwheel.
Cameraswill
view
the
Earthfrom
itssideor
rim
unlike
cameras
on
earlier
TIROS
which
pointed
from
the
bottom
of
the
satellite.
TIROS
I
is
designed
to
roll
at
a
rate
of
10
revolutions
a
minute.
Camerasin
its
rim
will
view
the
Earth
once
duringeach
revolutionpermitting
the
photographing
of
the
entire
sunlit
portion
of
the
Earth
daily.
If
thelaunch
is
successful,
the
satellite
will
be
designated
TIROS
IX.
Nine
consecutive
NASA
weather
satellite
launches
have
been
successful.
Of
these,
the
eight
earlier
TIROS
have
snapped
some
415,000weatherpictures
of
the
Earth
andthe
Nimbus
I
took27,000pictures.

The
launch
marks
the
first
NASA
attempt
to
place
a
satellite
in
near-polar
sun-synchronous
orbit
from
Cape
Kennedy.TIROS
I
is
scheduled
to
enter
orbit
over
the
PacificOceanabout300miles
west
of
Quito,
Ecuador
after
its
Delta
launch
vehiclehasperformed
three
dog-legmaneuvers.
The
Deltalaunch
vehicle,
which
has
placed
25
NASA
satel-litesin
orbit,is
programmed
to
put
the
305-poundTIROS
I
into
a
circular
orbit460statute
miles
high,
inclined
31.6
degrees
to
the
equator,
and
with
anorbital
period
of
100minutes.
Primaryobjective
of
the
TIROS
I
research
and
developmentlaunching
is
to
test
the
cartwheel
configuration.
It
is
the
forerunnerfor
