got
off
to
a
successful
startwith
Explorer
XVIII,
launched
Nov.

The
satellite
gave
physicists
a
new
viewof
how
the
Earth'smagnetic

extends
intospace
and
becomesdistorted
by

The
new
satellite,IMP-C,
will
bfc
launched
by
a
thrce-
stageDelta.The
highlyelliptical
orbit
is
planned
to
be
inclined
33
degrees
to
the
Equator
and
totake
the
satellite
130,000
miles
into
interplanetary
space
and
a.
close
to
Earth
as
120
miles.
About
four
days
will
be
required
for
the
130-poundsatellite
to
completean
orbit.
The
spacecraft
contains
nine experiments
by
scientists
from

universities
of
