American

telescopes
will
be
trained
on
the Sun
to
investigate
the
methods
by
which
solar
energy
is
transferred
betweenlayers
of
the Sun'satmosphere. The
observation
is
a
follow-upon clues re-
vealed byastronaut-operated

In

the

of
the Sun's

cycle,
willdetermine basic

that astronomers expect
to
occur
on

during

when

Robert
H.
Pickard,
OSO Project Manage-
at
Goddard
:.:pdce
Flight
Center,Greenbelt,
Md.,
which
manages
the project, stys:
"Although answers
to
such
questions
as
'whatcauses
a
solar
flare?'or
'what
causes
the
solar
cycle?'
have not
been
pro-vided,
we
are
getting
a
muchbetter understanding
of
our
nearest
star from
the
OSO spacecraft."
A
sophisticateddevice
called
the
Atored
command
pro-cessor,
as
well
as
a
small
experiment
computer,
makes
OSO
extremely
flexible
for the
user scientist.
