Man's escape from the confines of his planet offers him revolutionary opportunities for performing whole new ranges of scientific experiments, notably in such fields as astronomy, physics and geophysics. Electronics, because it provides the vital nerve system for such experiments, will be at the very center of these new exploits in space. Moreover, earth satellites, possibly in a 24-hour equatorial orbit, promise to open a new era in global communications in which almost limitless bandwidths may become available at relatively low cost. Space will become a major part of the activities of the IRE and its members in the future. Already there is developing a need for international planning of space-age communications standards and of regulations for utilizing satellites for man's greatest benefit.
