Space, even if interplanetary or interstellar, is full of plasma or ionized gasoline. The good fortune of area exploration needs to count number seriously at the research and knowing ofthe plasma. With this view, the Symposium ofPlasma area technology was once held on the Catholic collage of the US in Washington, D.C., in cooperation with the nationwide Aeronautics and house management and the Goddard area Flight middle, June 11-14, 1963. The symposium was once equipped by means of Dr. C. C. Chang as director and Dr. Y. C. Whang as assistant director. The lawsuits encompass 4 components. the 1st half describes the sunlight phenomena: sunlight magnetic box, flare, surroundings, cosmic rays, radiation, and so forth. the second one half bargains with the sun wind or interplanetary plasma. This contains either theoretical therapy and experimental measurements of Mariner H. The 3rd half is concen­ trated on magnetosphere, with the measurements on trapped radiation from typical resources and excessive altitude thermonuclear explosions, and especially with the magnetopause. The fourth and final half comprises the hoop present, geomagnetic storms, the aurora, the ionosphere and lunar floor phenomena. there has been around desk dialogue in every one consultation. Many fascinating reviews and stimulating arguments emerged from the ground and are integrated within the Proceedings.
