Energy Secretary Pena to Quit Clinton Cabinet

April 07, 1998 PAUL RICHTER TIMES STAFF WRITER

WASHINGTON — Energy Secretary Federico Pena announced Monday that he will retire in June, raising concern among some Latino groups that the Clinton administration will end its second term with no Latinos leading Cabinet-level departments.

Pena said he will leave the Energy post after less than 18 months for a private job that will give him more time with his family. The former Transportation secretary and two-term Denver mayor ruled out a return to politics.

"There is never a perfect time for a decision like this, but I believe that, after 5 1/2 years in the Clinton administration, that the time is now," said Pena, 51, who led the Department of Transportation for all of Clinton's first term.

Pena had prepared to leave Washington in January 1997, but he was pressured to take the Energy job when Latino leaders complained at the last moment that their Cabinet-level representation in Clinton's second term was minimal.

Some Latino leaders said Monday that Pena's departure would be a serious loss for a group that they believe is underrepresented in senior-level posts in the federal government, despite Latinos' growing numbers and strong support for Clinton's reelection.

This reduction of representation in the Cabinet "is not satisfactory, because in fact some of the departments are doing very poorly in having senior-level Latinos to begin with," said Arturo Vargas, who chairs the Latino Hispanic Leadership Agenda, an umbrella organization of 35 groups. "The absence of a Cabinet voice will be strongly felt among the constituency."

Marisa Demeo, of the Washington office of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Education Fund, said her group wants Pena replaced with a qualified Latino. "With the size of our population," she said, her group wants Latino concerns to receive full consideration.

President Clinton pledged in his first term to appoint a Cabinet that "looked like America" and has often showed himself attentive to the concerns of women and minority groups in making such decisions.

*

Although his second-term Cabinet has included three blacks, four women and a Republican, it had only one Latino--Pena. In so-called "Cabinet-level posts," which do not have the status of the 14 traditional Cabinet jobs, Clinton has two more Latinos: United Nations Ambassador Bill Richardson and Aida Alvarez, head of the Small Business Administration.

White House officials said they will undertake a thorough search for Pena's replacement, but they made no promises on the outcome.

Mike McCurry, the White House press secretary, said Clinton "will cast a wide net" in looking for a new Energy secretary. "Obviously diversity will be an important criteria, as will excellence," he said, adding that in his view Latinos "enjoy a high degree of representation throughout the administration."

Latino advocacy groups pressed the administration last year to put Latinos in top jobs at agencies considered key to their interests, such as the departments of Labor and Health and Human Services, as well as the Justice Department, with its jurisdiction over civil rights.

But the vacancy at the Labor Department went to Alexis M. Herman, who is black.

Administration officials acknowledged that a strong candidate for the Energy job is Elizabeth A. Moler, the deputy Energy secretary, who is not Latino. A former head of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, which oversees gas pipelines and electric utilities, Moler was all but chosen for the Energy job in January 1997, when Pena was named to the position.

Moler, who led the administration's effort to deregulate the electric power business, "is a very competent person. I'm sure her name will be among the names of others to be considered by the president," Pena said Monday.

The White House "is just at square one," said a person close to the selection process.

When he took the job last year, Pena indicated that he would serve for one to two years, officials said. They said his decision to leave in June is in part a reflection of his view that his $148,000-a-year job is insufficient to support his wife and three children.

Pena's wife, Ellen Hart Pena, has set aside her career as a lawyer to raise the children, and is an accomplished marathon runner.

Despite the keen interest many Latino groups have in finding a Cabinet spot for a Latino, officials of some advocacy groups acknowledged that it might not happen.

Charles Kamasaki, vice president of the National Council of La Raza, said there may be fewer Cabinet openings and greater reluctance among top Latino candidates to disrupt their careers to fill out the remainder of a presidential term.

Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Los Angeles), who helped lead the fight last year to find a Latino Cabinet secretary, said that--although he would "love to see a qualified candidate" from the Latino community--he would not press the White House to fill the Energy slot in particular.

"This isn't a game of quotas," he said.

Pena succeeded Hazel O'Leary as secretary at a time when some Republican members of Congress questioned the department's usefulness. Attacks on the department subsided during Pena's tenure, although he has been key in crafting strategies to promote new technologies and energy efficiency to support the president's controversial global warming policy.

During his time in the Cabinet, Pena was the focus of two Justice Department inquiries. No evidence of wrongdoing was found in either case. In one, the Justice Department cleared Pena of improperly intervening in a Coast Guard contract. The other case involved a contract awarded to Pena's former law firm and federal funds used to revamp Denver's airport.

XLII President of the United States: 1993 - 2001

Statement on the Resignation of Federico Peña as Secretary of Energy

April 6, 1998

Earlier today, with regret, I accepted Secretary of Energy Federico Pena's resignation.

Secretary Pena has admirably served my administration, first as Secretary of Transportation and then as Secretary of Energy. It is a measure of my confidence in his abilities that I entrusted him to run not one but two Cabinet agencies.

In his last year he diligently managed the Energy Department, focusing on energy, environmental quality, national security, and science and technology issues. Just last week Secretary Pena unveiled our Comprehensive Electricity Competition Plan, saving consumers $20 billion per year by introducing competition into the electricity industry. Under his leadership, the Department of Energy provided much of the analysis that gave me the confidence that we can reduce greenhouse gas emissions without harming the economy.

In the last year he helped shape our policy in the Caspian region, building a coalition among the key nations in that region; he provided a comprehensive national energy strategy for the Nation that will help ensure that Americans have affordable, clean, and secure energy supplies in the 21st century; and he privatized Elk Hills Naval Petroleum Reserve, generating $3.65 billion for U.S. taxpayers.

During his 4 years at the Transportation Department, Secretary Pena increased the level of competitiveness of America's transportation industry with more investments in mass transit than at any time since Woodrow Wilson was President. Secretary Pena helped to improve travel safety, signed aviation agreements with 40 nations, opened lucrative markets for American airlines, and oversaw a 25 percent increase in infrastructure investments.

I wish Secretary Pena, his wife, Ellen, and their three children the best for the future. I thank him for his invaluable service as a member of my Cabinet.

N1 (rocket)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The N1 was a super heavy-lift launch vehicle intended to deliver payloads beyond low Earth orbit, acting as the Soviet counterpart to the US Saturn V. It was designed with crewed extra-orbital travel in mind. Development work started on the N1 in 1959. Its first stage is the most powerful rocket stage ever built.

The N1-L3 version was developed to compete with the United States Apollo-Saturn V to land a man on the Moon, using the same lunar orbit rendezvous method. The basic N1 launch vehicle had three stages, which was to carry the L3 lunar payload into low Earth orbit with two cosmonauts. The L3 contained an Earth departure stage; another stage used for mid-course corrections, lunar orbit insertion, and powered descent initiation; a single-pilot LK Lander spacecraft; and a two-pilot Soyuz 7K-LOK lunar orbital spacecraft for return to Earth. The Apollo spacecraft was able to carry three astronauts (landing two on the Moon), and did not require the extra two rocket stages.

Each of the four attempts to launch an N1 failed; during the second launch attempt the N1 rocket crashed back onto its launch pad shortly after liftoff and exploded, resulting in one of the largest artificial non-nuclear explosions in human history.

Computing in the Soviet Space Program:

An Introduction

by Slava Gerovitch


Unlike Korolev's and Chelomey's design bureaus, which ordered computer hardware from other manufacturers, the Scientific Research Institute of Automatics and Instrument-Making (NII AP), led by Nikolai Pilyugin, the chief designer of control systems for Soviet spacecraft, designed and developed its own onboard computers. For the second phase of the development of the lunar complex N1-L3, Pilyugin's institute designed a new control system based on the S-530 computer. It was intended for calculating all control tasks: guidance, control of the operating logic of the control system's own equipment, and control of the engines and of all other systems in the N1 rocket. There were plans to use the same machine for the control system of the LOK (the lunar orbital ship) and the LK (the lunar ship). The S-530 computer was installed on board the N1 rocket at its fourth launch attempt on November 23, 1972, which ended unsuccessfully

Yes, There Was a Moon Race

APRIL 1990

BY JAMES E. OBERG

The Soviets said it was a fraud, and many believed them. Now the USSR itself has acknowledged the truth.

When Apollo 11 astronauts touched down on the moon in the summer of 1969, they brought their spacecraft to rest in a lunar region whose name seemed appropriate to the occasion. The near-flawless voyage ended in the Sea of Tranquillity.

There had been, however, an earlier lunar visitor. Only hours before the US Apollo landing, an unmanned lunar probe approached the moon, flying in as part of a last, desperate effort by the Soviet Union to arrive there first. It crashed. In retrospect, it seems that the scene of that lunar mishap was equally fitting. The place was called the Sea of Crises.

The full irony of these events, however, was lost on most Americans. They were unaware of the multiple crises plaguing the USSR's man-on-the-moon push. Indeed, few were--or are even now--aware that a serious Soviet lunar program existed. But it did.

The issue, long in dispute, is suddenly settled. In yet another startling episode of glasnost, the Soviet press has released a flood of revelations proving once and for all that the USSR raced the US to the moon and intended to win.

Now confirmed openly are Soviet moon-exploration schedules that were competitive with Apollo plans, the names and histories of Soviet lunar boosters and landers, and identities of the lunar cosmonauts. Even photos of manned lunar craft are available.

In exploding the myth that they never entered the moon race, the Soviets themselves have vindicated those few Western experts who correctly interpreted Soviet space activities. Much of the Western political and media elite had by 1963 concluded that the moon race was a fraud. After Apollo 11, the USSR sniffed that it never was interested in such a costly, perilous, marginal operation. Many bought this self-serving line.

Examination of newly disclosed evidence about one of the most intense phases of the superpower rivalry makes plain that US actions came in response to an authentic Soviet challenge.

New information also offers insights into what went wrong with Soviet plans. For those convinced that Moscow was aiming for the moon, the mystery has been why, after successful unmanned flights in the late 1960s, the Soviets never staged a manned shot. The answer is that, to the last, the program was racked by deep bureaucratic struggles and bitter clashes between competing individuals.

A Two-Part Program

We now know the Soviet lunar program was divided into two distinct parts.

The first part of the campaign was a program, called "Zond" in public and "Project L-1" in secret, that aimed to carry out a manned flyby of the moon. The second stage focused on mounting an actual lunar landing, utilizing a hitherto secret spacecraft, called "Project L-3," and a huge superbooster, the N-1.

Even in the 1960s, Western space experts had identified the Zond project as potentially aimed at producing a manned, lunar space vehicle.

In the Soviet Union of the early 1960s, there were two main competing spacecraft teams, the equivalents of Western aerospace corporations. They were those run by Sergei Pavlovich Korolev and Vladimir Nikolaievich Chelomey, both now deceased.

Korolev operated a design bureau in Kalinin, north of Moscow, and a major spacecraft and rocket plant in Kuybyshev, on the Volga River. Chelomey's design bureau was in Moscow, as was his rocket factory. Supporting all of the rocket manufacturers was an engine-design group based in Leningrad, headed by Valentin Petrovich Glushko, also now deceased.

In 1963, the Chelomey team was given a special task: It was to build a superrocket, known as UR-700 at the time, but soon to be known as "Proton." Within the CIA, the rocket was called the SL-9; later versions with improved upper stages were called SL-12 and SL-13. Conceived as a military missile to carry Premier Nikita Khrushchev's 100-megaton nuclear "terror bomb," Proton was soon applied to space transport needs.

At the same time, Korolev's team was designing its own superbooster to compete with Chelomey's UR-700/Proton. It got the name N-1. In the West, the rocket became known as the SL-15 or Type G. It was the first Soviet rocket designed without a primary weapons-carrying mission.

The two premier Soviet rocket designers, Chelomey and Korolev, had competing plans for manned lunar flight. In 1962-63, as the US Apollo program gained force, the Soviets had two groups at each other's throats, but had no overall lunar strategy.

Big Struggle, No Master Plan

Korolev's team took its plans for what would become the future Soyuz vehicle and developed a scheme to mount a simple, manned lunar flyby mission using only the small R-7 booster. The plan called for launchings of four or five orbital refueling vehicles, followed by near-Earth assembly and fueling of a manned vehicle. The vehicle was to fly around the moon and return.

Chelomey's team had a far different plan. It counted on using a single launch of its new Proton rocket, three times more powerful than R-7, to carry a manned space vehicle directly to the moon. Early plans called for using a spacecraft of the team's own design, though the two-man Voskhod spacecraft was later considered.

In the struggle for preeminence, each group made an appeal to Khrushchev. Chelomey even hired Khrushchev's son as an officer in his rocket organization. Arguments went back and forth. Finally, early in 1964, the Soviet leadership made its decision.

Khrushchev formally selected Chelomey's team to carry out Project L-1, the manned lunar flyby program. The event likely was to take place in 1966 or 1967. Khrushchev told Korolev's team to concentrate its efforts on hardware to support Project L-3, the manned lunar landing, and specifically on perfecting the lander itself and the N-1 superbooster. The Kremlin ordered the landing to take place in 1968, two years ahead of when NASA planned to put Americans on the moon.

The plans were thrown immediately into turmoil, however, when designer Korolev undertook constant efforts to seize and run all of the projects--Chelomey's no less than his own. Korolev's demands were not unreasonable. L-1 and L-3, in terms of the Apollo project, would be the "command module" and "lunar module." Development of the two had to be tightly coordinated.

Politics vs. Science

Then came a bigger blow to stability of the program: the sudden ouster of Khrushchev in October 1964. When Khrushchev was sacked, Chelomey lost his key Kremlin patron. Korolev launched a campaign to persuade Leonid Brezhnev, the new General Secretary, and Dmitri Ustinov, minister in charge of space, to transfer authority over the L-1 lunar flyby program to his own bureau.

In late 1965, Korolev succeeded. It turned out to be a hollow victory for his team, however, as Korolev died only a few months later. His deputy, Vasily Mishin, assumed command.

At the time of Korolev's death, the US was already more than halfway through the Gemini program and had begun to flight-test prototype Apollo hardware. A unified plan for lunar orbit rendezvous had been written. NASA centers and contractors were in harness. The Saturn 1B, with the essential liquid-hydrogen engine for the second and third stages of the Saturn V, had been proven.

The Soviet program was stumbling badly. The Kremlin's final, official approval of the entire lunar program came only in February 1967, shortly after the Apollo 1 fire killed three astronauts and seemed to derail the US program indefinitely.

In 1967, US suspicions about Soviet intentions became fully aroused. NASA, led by Administrator James Webb, began calling attention to evidence that Moscow had embarked on a manned lunar landing program. In hindsight, it becomes obvious that US Air Force intelligence satellites had detected huge N-1 boosters at launch sites and engine tests at the Kuybyshev factory.

Having won the internal power struggle, the Mishin team--formerly Korolev's--was now supported by Chelomey's Proton booster. Plans called for several flight tests, leading to a manned lunar landing in the third quarter of 1968. The Mishin team was directed to begin tests, in the spring of 1967, of its own giant N-1 booster. The N-1 design, as finally approved, was a two-stage system with a payload capacity of 95,000 kilograms in low-Earth orbit. Thirty engines were mounted in pairs at the base of the first stage. Rocket fuels for all the stages, Mishin argued, should be kerosene and liquid oxygen. For Proton, however, Chelomey selected hypergolic fuels, hydrazine and nitric acid. Glushko sided with Chelomey. Glushko's unwillingness to cooperate with Mishin dragged out the N-1 process.

Throughout 1967, the Soviet lunar program continued to be dogged by mishaps and difficulties, first with the Mishin team's new Soyuz! L-1 command module and then with Chelomey's troublesome Proton/UR-700 booster, which had experienced a string of launch failures. The Soyuz/L-1 project suffered a disaster in April when an accident killed a cosmonaut. Even so, L-1 was far enough along by mid-1967 that the USSR organized a special cosmonaut team to train for the lunar mission.

Cosmonauts Begin to Train

The select cosmonaut team numbered about twenty members, including Yuri Gagarin, Pavel Belyayev, Valery Bykovski, and Alexei Leonov. They were hardened veterans, and they had to be. One of them, Andrian Nikolayev, told Radio Moscow that once, as he and Gagarin watched a launch of a Proton/Zond, the booster exploded and sprayed the pair with poisonous nitric acid fumes. The would-be lunar explorers had to flee for their lives.

Well into 1968, Soviet efforts continued to flounder. The ambitious development and test schedule for the N-1 superbooster proved impossible to meet, and the whole of 1968 was spent trying to get the first flight vehicle ready for a launch.

This, of course, was not known in the West. The Soviets had completed their ground facilities and were hauling mockup N-1 rockets back and forth to test pad plumbing, wiring, and other systems. To those viewing the photographs taken from American spy satellites, the Soviet hardware and activity looked impressive.

Observations such as these led to a NASA decision to accelerate the Apollo schedule. By August 1968, NASA had chosen a bold plan. There would be no more waiting. The second manned Apollo mission, using the Saturn V booster, would be sent from Earth to carry out a flyby of the moon.

Shortly afterward, on September 23, 1968, the unmanned Zond 5 returned to Earth, confirming NASA in its decision to step up the pace. Several earlier failures of the Zond had escaped the notice of intelligence agencies. Even with the Zond 5, a failure in the navigation system had forced an emergency landing in the Indian Ocean, but this was not known. Two months later, in the fall of 1968, an unmanned Zond 7 command module did make a successful circumlunar flight, clearing the way for a possible manned mission.

Recently published Soviet diaries reveal that Soviet authorities wanted to carry out at least two more unmanned tests of the Zond module. In the US, however, no one suspected such top-level Soviet caution. US space officials saw that the Soviets would have a launch window on December 8, 1968, after which the moon would not be in proper position for flights from Soviet territory for a number of months. Moreover, Apollo 8's manned lunar voyage was set for December 20, 1968, and the Kremlin knew it. The Americans were all but certain that the Russians would go first.

Despite this confluence of opportunity and motivation, Moscow waited. For twenty years, this mystery of "the missing lunar launch" stumped Westerners, who speculated on possible hardware problems, medical problems, even bad weather at the launch site. It seems now that, at the crucial point in the moon race, the Soviet authorities may simply have lost their nerve.

The US did not, and Apollo 8 blasted off on schedule. Not only did Apollo 8 edge out the USSR's planned lunar flyby; in addition, the US mission conducted ten complete orbits of the moon, a feat the Russians hadn't planned to attempt. Moscow undeniably had lost the first big round in the moon race.

It is now clear that many Soviet space officials bitterly opposed the cautious approach. Lev Kamenin, son of the cosmonaut training chief and aide to Soviet space officials, wrote in his diary for the day at the Apollo 8 launch: "For us this [day] is darkened with the realization of lost opportunities and with sadness that today the men flying to the moon are named Borman, Lovell, and Anders, and not Bykovski, Popovich, or Leonov."

The trio of cosmonauts named in Kamenin's diaries had in fact been designated as the commanders of two-man teams preparing for the mission.

Though its plans to be first with a manned flyby had been trumped, the Soviet Union was not out of the competition. No human yet had actually landed on the moon. Soviet space officials knew that NASA was experiencing difficulties with Saturn V's second stage and with the lunar landing vehicle. In late 1968, few Soviets--or even Americans--expected the US to attempt an Apollo landing before 1970, and perhaps not until 1971. For the Soviets, then, the most spectacular aspect of the moon race was still on, and the L-3 lunar landing program was still in the running.

In fact, it was nearing a climax of sorts. A pair of tests of the L-3 lunar landing vehicle, two years behind schedule, were set for 1969. If these went well, a manned Soviet lunar landing would be possible by the end of 1970.

An Unsuspected Advantage

The Soviets had one advantage totally unsuspected in the West: They did not intend to use the N-1 superbooster to launch cosmonauts. Instead, plans called for Soviet cosmonauts to be launched inside their fully-fueled Soyuz/L-1 command module, stacked atop a Proton booster. Then, a few hours later, the moon craft would be launched unmanned on an N-1. The two spacecraft would immediately link up in low orbit and head for the moon.

The practical consequence was that there would be no need to put the N-1 through the immensely intricate--and time-consuming--safety verification process for manned flight.

Soviet rendezvous flights in 1967-69 followed an unusual profile of launching first the manned ship, then an unmanned ship. This was the opposite of the sequence for visiting a space station. The strange Soviet profile was evidently designed to accommodate the needs of the manned lunar landing mission.

However, much depended on the Proton being made reliable enough to trust with a manned launch. In 1968, there were grave doubts on that score. The N-1 booster also was crucial to the landing mission. Western intelligence sources have over the years leaked unflattering accounts of the doomed rocket's flight tests. However, they seem to have entirely missed the first N-1 launch on February 21, 1969. The rocket flew well for a full minute before sensors detected a fire in the tail section and shut down all engines.

The next flight of the N-1 was prepared under the stress created by signs that Apollo's moon landing might come far sooner than expected. None of the difficulties hoped for by the Soviets had materialized. Apollo 11 was set for a July 16,1969, launch.

Two weeks before this date, on July 3, the second N-1 prepared to lift off its pad at Tyuratam. In the final seconds of countdown, as a second-stage, liquid-oxygen turbo-pump was being spun up to flight operational speed, it disintegrated before a hole in the fuel tank. Within moments, the second stage erupted in flames. Then the rocket's first stage exploded. The launchpad was destroyed. A massive cloud rose into the sky and drifted into the field of view of a passing US weather satellite.

With all eyes on Cape Kennedy, the disastrous events at Tyuratam went unnoticed. Apollo 11 amazed the world with its own smooth countdown. Soviet officials listened with a mixture of awe and dismay to Western broadcasts. (Soviet media minimized the event.) Then Neil Armstrong and Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin walked the moon and returned with Michael Collins to Earth. The race to the moon was over.

Defeated But Not Finished

Though defeated, the Soviets didn't quit entirely. They disbanded the special cosmonaut team but kept all the engineers working. The L-3 manned lunar spaceship was readied for testing, and nobody was yet prepared to kill the program.

According to Western intelligence sources, the first L-3 vehicle was launched unmanned in November1969, but the Chelomey Proton booster failed again. It did so yet again a few months later.

Finally, on December 2, 1970, the Proton boosted what was called the Kosmos 382 satellite into orbit. The Soviet cover story had it that the Kosmos 382 was a scientific research vehicle, but it soon began to conduct rocket burns simulating a manned lunar mission.

Three smaller vehicles went aloft in 1970 and 1971, likely to test the lunar module's ascent stage. Spaceship's Kosmos 379 on November 24, 1970, Kosmos 398 on February 26, 1971 and Kosmos 434 on August 12 1971, conducted large-scale rocket burns, relayed simulated manned telemetry, and showed that manned moonships had been built despite the denials.

The N-1 superbooster program continued for a while. By mid-1971, the Soviets prepared to stage a third flight. It lifted off in early summer, probably on June 27. For seven seconds the engines performed perfectly, lifting the vehicle several hundred meters into the air. Then, an unpredicted fluid dynamics effect led to a massive buildup of rolling motion, and the spin became too great for the steering rockets to fight. The booster fell back onto the newly-rebuilt launchpad, destroying it for a second time.

A fourth N-1 launch occurred on November 23, 1972. The first stage performed well, firing its full 107 seconds and shutting down on time. During the coasting period prior to ignition of the second stage, however, plumbing failures in the rocket's tail caused a massive fire. The Soviets lost control of the rocket and had to abort the mission.

In this flight Mishin's N-1 rocket engineers actually found some encouragement. By 1974, the Soviets had prepared two more tests of N-1 vehicles of greatly improved reliability and robustness. They expected to clear the booster for manned lunar expeditions beginning in 1975.

Political Support Fades

All the while, however, high-level political support was evaporating. The cost of the N-1 was appalling; Mishin says less than three billion rubles, but another source estimates four and a half billion. Outside of Mishin's own group, optimism about the value of ultimate success--when and if it ever occurred-- did not exist. Glushko's attacks on Mishin's leadership and competence became more and more credible. The Soviet Union knew there would be no glory in repeating the success of Apollo so many years after the fact. What's more, any attempt would only confirm that a manned program--an inferior one--had existed all along.

Glushko and his allies steeled themselves for action. During one of Mishin's frequent hospital stays, his enemies made their move. They argued forcefully to Soviet leaders that policy and personnel had to change. They won. It was decided that Mishin would have to "retire" and that Glushko would replace him. On Mishin's first day out of the hospital, Glushko ordered him to turn in his security pass. Ustinov relieved Mishin of his duties.

Glushko was named director of the old Korolev bureau in Kalinin, replacing the disgraced Mishin. On his first day in office, he signed a decree canceling the entire N-1 superbooster program. Glushko and his staff wrote the official Soviet space histories, making sure that Mishin's name was never mentioned.

Having dispensed with Mishin and the entire lunar program, Glushko reshaped the Soviet space program to his liking. He had by 1976 persuaded Brezhnev that Russia needed a space shuttle like the one NASA was building; over the next twelve years, the USSR spent fourteen billion rubles on the Energiya/Buran system. In many ways, the rocket piggybacked on technology developed for the N-I superbooster; it even used a surviving N-1 launchpad, after modifications. Today, however, the Soviets are wondering publicly what use their shuttle, Glushko's legacy, really has.

The Soviets themselves have drawn bitter conclusions about their failure in the moon race with the United States.

One recent commentary in Izvestia observes that the fates of N-1 and L-3 reflected painful problems common to the rest of Soviet society: "excessive politicization of science, substitution of sham goals for worthy ones, 'voluntarism' [a Soviet euphemism for wishful thinking], and lack of collective decision- making on crucial issues."

Mishin told Pravda not long ago that development of the Soviet space program had been obstructed by "monopolism and excessive secrecy, nepotism and political chicanery." The manned lunar program failed, he believed, largely because the motives of its organizers were inappropriate: They put political goals ahead of scientific ones and were interested chiefly in enhancing the USSR's prestige.

Description

Pioneer 1, the second and most successful of three project Able space probes and the first spacecraft launched by the newly formed NASA, was intended to study the ionizing radiation, cosmic rays, magnetic fields, and micrometeorites in the vicinity of the Earth and in lunar orbit. Due to a launch vehicle malfunction, the spacecraft attained only a ballistic trajectory and never reached the Moon. It did return data on the near-Earth space environment.


Mission Profile

The spacecraft did not reach the Moon as planned due to an incorrectly set valve in the upper stage which caused an accelerometer to give faulty information leading to a slight error in burnout velocity (the Thor second stage shut down 10 seconds early) and angle (3.5 degrees). This resulted in a ballistic trajectory with a peak altitude of 113,800 km around 1300 local time. The real-time transmission was obtained for about 75% of the flight, but the percentage of data recorded for each experiment was variable. Except for the first hour of flight, the signal to noise ratio was good. The spacecraft ended transmission when it reentered the Earth's atmosphere after 43 hours of flight on October 13, 1958 at 03:46 UT over the South Pacific Ocean.

Description

A diaphragm/microphone micrometeorite detector assembly that permitted a two-level discrimination of impact energy was designed to determine micrometeorite density in interstellar space. The area of the exterior diaphragm equaled a predetermined fraction of the total surface area of the spacecraft. Results were limited because of a vehicle failure which caused the spacecraft to reenter the atmosphere over the South Pacific on October 12, 1958.

The American Presidency Project

William J. Clinton

XLII President of the United States: 1993 - 2001

The President's Radio Address

November 23, 1996

Good morning. As you know, I'm traveling across the Pacific visiting Australia, the Philippines, and Thailand. Hillary and I and our delegation are enjoying the great natural beauty and the warmth and hospitality of the people of this diverse region.

America's involvement and influence here helps to provide the stability, to promote the economic progress, to encourage the cooperation on many fronts, including preserving our natural environment, that benefits all Americans. With partners and friends like the nations I'm visiting, we're going to enter the 21st century stronger than ever.

This is a good trip, but I'm looking forward to returning home in time for Thanksgiving. More than any other holiday, Thanksgiving reminds us of the importance of family and community and the ties that bind us together. As we gather with our families this year to give thanks, we must never forget the duty we owe to those in our American community who are less fortunate than we are.

The Bible tells us that when we harvest, we must not take everything for ourselves but remember to leave something for the poor to glean. Today, those gleanings are the gifts of food we give to those who need them. Across our Nation, in food banks and houses of worship and community groups, thousands of Americans are taking the initiative to fight hunger and feed their neighbors. We must all do our part and support these efforts because not all the needs are met and we plainly can do more. For example, we know that too much food goes to waste. In restaurants, cafeterias, and grocery stores across our country, thousands of pounds of perfectly good, healthy food is thrown out every day, enough to feed 49 million people a year. Recovering that surplus food can make a real difference in the fight against hunger in America.

Our administration has tried to help. This past summer, hundreds of young people from our national service program, AmeriCorps, joined private volunteers to get food to the poor. They worked with farmers in the fields, teaching them how to save excess produce. They worked with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and the Congressional Hunger Center to help recover 174 tons of excess food. All told, this past summer they recovered over a thousand tons of food, providing over a million meals. And every week the U.S. Department of Agriculture's cafeteria in Washington sends another 150 pounds of food to a soup kitchen.

Last October I signed into law the good Samaritan food donation act. This law encourages private businesses, local governments, and ordinary citizens to donate food by protecting them from lawsuits. This can make a real difference. Second Harvest, a national food bank network, estimates that the good Samaritan law will result in approximately 25 million pounds of food next year.

Today we're taking two more steps to help fight hunger. First, I'm directing every department and agency in our administration to actively work to promote food recovery and distribution. From now on, all Federal agencies will recover surplus food from their cafeterias, public events, and other food-service facilities. And they'll work with Government contractors, State and local governments, and private businesses to encourage all citizens to do the same.

The second thing we're doing is to make it easier for private citizens to take steps to help feed the poor. Today we're releasing a new handbook, "The Citizen's Guide to Food Recovery." It will tell you how you can get started, the names of the charities in your area that work to recover food, and the lessons we've already learned in communities all across America. You can call a 1-800 number; it's 1-800- GLEAN-IT—that's 1-800-G-L-E-A-N-I-T—to learn more about food recovery and to get a copy of the Citizen's Guide.

Our Nation has always been a land of plenty. But as blessed as we are, we must never forget that there are those still struggling to take part in America's bounty. Ultimately, all Americans must take responsibility to help our fellow citizens in need. So this Thanksgiving, as we celebrate with our own loved ones, let us remember those who are not so fortunate. By making sure that food does not go to waste, we can make the spirit of Thanksgiving real for literally millions of our people every single day of the year. Thanks for listening, and Happy Thanksgiving.

Robert Lee Yates Jr.

BY Gary C. King

Aviator, Husband, Father, Ordinary Guy

The father of four daughters and a son, Robert Yates Jr. led a relatively ordinary and unremarkable life that was characterized by exemplary military service. Yates grew up on Whidbey Island, Washington, where his mother died while he was still in high school. Records show that he was allegedly repeatedly sexually abused by an older neighbor boy when he was approximately six-years-old, and it isn't clear whether he received psychiatric help or counseling.

We're not far from the site of the old sawmill where my grandfather worked as a night watchman and where, as a little boy, I used to go and spend the night with him, climbing the sawdust pile, and sleep in the back seat of his car. We're just minutes—I just drove by it— from the place on which his little grocery store stood, where I used to look up at the countertop and wish I could reach the jar of Jackson's cookies.










https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissism


Narcissism

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one's own attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water.

Narcissism is a concept in psychoanalytic theory, which was popularly introduced in Sigmund Freud's essay On Narcissism (1914). The American Psychiatric Association has had the classification narcissistic personality disorder in its Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) since 1968, drawing on the historical concept of megalomania.

Narcissism is also considered a social or cultural problem. It is a factor in trait theory used in various self-report inventories of personality such as the Millon Clinical Multiaxial Inventory. It is one of the three dark triadic personality traits (the others being psychopathy and Machiavellianism).

Except in the sense of primary narcissism or healthy self-love, narcissism is usually considered a problem in a person's or group's relationships with self and others.


Types


Narcissism in the workplace

Main article: Narcissism in the workplace

Narcissism as a personality trait, generally assessed with the Narcissistic Personality Inventory, is related to behavior in the workplace. For example, individuals high on narcissism are more likely to engage in counterproductive work behavior (CWB, behavior that harms organizations or other people in the workplace). Although individuals high on narcissism might engage in more aggressive (and counterproductive) behaviors, they mainly do so when their self-esteem is threatened. Thus narcissistic employees are more likely to engage in CWB when they feel threatened. Individuals high in narcissism have fragile self-esteem and are easily threatened. One study found that employees who are high on narcissism are more likely to perceive the behaviors of others in the workplace as abusive and threatening than individuals who are low on narcissism.

Confirmation bias

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Confirmation bias, also called confirmatory bias or myside bias, is the tendency to search for, interpret, favor, and recall information in a way that confirms one's preexisting beliefs or hypotheses, while giving disproportionately less consideration to alternative possibilities. It is a type of cognitive bias and a systematic error of inductive reasoning. People display this bias when they gather or remember information selectively, or when they interpret it in a biased way. The effect is stronger for emotionally charged issues and for deeply entrenched beliefs. People also tend to interpret ambiguous evidence as supporting their existing position. Biased search, interpretation and memory have been invoked to explain attitude polarization (when a disagreement becomes more extreme even though the different parties are exposed to the same evidence), belief perseverance (when beliefs persist after the evidence for them is shown to be false), the irrational primacy effect (a greater reliance on information encountered early in a series) and illusory correlation (when people falsely perceive an association between two events or situations).

A series of experiments in the 1960s suggested that people are biased toward confirming their existing beliefs. Later work re-interpreted these results as a tendency to test ideas in a one-sided way, focusing on one possibility and ignoring alternatives. In certain situations, this tendency can bias people's conclusions. Explanations for the observed biases include wishful thinking and the limited human capacity to process information. Another explanation is that people show confirmation bias because they are weighing up the costs of being wrong

BECKETT: You don't have to remind me. I experienced it first hand with that drone weapon back on Earth.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_New_Breed_(The_Outer_Limits)


The New Breed (The Outer Limits)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

"The New Breed" is an episode of The Outer Limits television show. It first aired on 23 June 1995


Introduction

Dr. Stephen Ledbetter makes a technological and medical breakthrough when he creates a type of tiny machine, known as nanobots, capable of curing any disease or imperfections in the human body.

Opening narration

"Man has long worked to stave off the diseases that can ravage us. But what can happen when the cure grows more fearsome than the disease?"

Plot

Stephen's best friend Dr. Andy Groenig tells him that he wants to marry Stephen's sister, Judy. Overjoyed at the news, Stephen shows Andy the nanobots and explains what a remarkable breakthrough they are.

Andy later discovers that he has pelvic cancer, and has approximately one year to live if the hip and leg are not removed. In desperation he sneaks into Stephen's lab and injects himself with the nanobots. They quickly eliminate his cancer.

Andy tells Stephen about the success of his machines. Stephen becomes concerned about what impact the nanobots may have on Andy's health — and about the possibility that he may go to prison for using an untested drug on another person. Stephen wants to deactivate the nanobots, but Andy tells him not to worry because Andy injected himself and Stephen is not responsible. Andy convinces him to leave the nanobots alone.

The nanobots not only cure Andy's cancer, they improve his health in other ways, including: removing a scar, improving his eyesight, and making him more energetic and sexually active with his fiancée. In Stephen's lab, Andy puts his hand over a bunsen burner causing a severe burn, but the nanobots repair the damaged skin in seconds.

Stephen embarks on a series of tests to find out exactly what the nanobots are capable of. Andy is submerged in water and unable to breathe, but the nanobots keep him alive. Things begin to go wrong when Andy wakes up the following day to find that the nanobots have responded to the tests by giving him gills, allowing him to breathe underwater in the future. After telling Stephen of this, they both agree that the nanobots must be deactivated immediately. Stephen is unsuccessful — he takes measure after measure to stop them, but he is never able to eradicate all of them.

The nanobots continue making "improvements" to Andy, including giving him eyes in the back of his head, bones above his stomach, keen hearing, and jellyfish-like stinging tentacles on his skin.

Stephen is ultimately unable to deactivate the nanobots, and Andy wants to die to keep his fiancée from seeing the monster he has become. Stephen kills Andy with electrocution and burns his laboratory, destroying any remaining nanobots and his research. The episode ends with Andy's grieving fiancée having cut her finger on a shattered photograph of him. The wound heals immediately, implying that the nanobots have spread to her as well.

Rumsfeld quitting; will be replaced by former CIA head

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON – President Bush said today that Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld was resigning and named former CIA Director Robert Gates to replace him at the Pentagon.


Bush seemed stoic about the election, proclaiming: "This isn't my first rodeo."

New Questions On Bush Guard Duty

60 Minutes Has Newly Obtained Documents On President's Military Service

2004 Sep 08

CORRESPONDENT Rebecca Leung


One of the Killian memos is an official order to George W. Bush to report for a physical. The president never carried out the order.

On Aug. 1, 1972, Lt. Bush was suspended from flying status, due to failure to accomplish his annual medical examination. That document was released years ago. But another document has not been seen until now. It's a memo that Col. Jerry Killian put in his own file that same day. It says "on this date, I ordered that 1st Lt. Bush be suspended not just for failing to take a physical….but for failing to perform to U.S. Air Force/Texas Air National Guard standards."

He goes on: "The officer [then-Lt. Bush] has made no attempt to meet his training certification or flight physical."

The Final Countdown (1980)

Quotes


Captain Yelland: This is the captain, I am speaking to every man aboard this ship. In the past few hours many things have happened; rumors of nuclear attacks and a third world war are totally untrue. We have no reason to believe that any aggression has been taken against our homes our families. I believe what we stumbled across is not man-made but a phenomena of nature, one that can't be explained.










1980 film "The Final Countdown" DVD video:


Laurel Scott: Are we at war? Is that what happened?

Navy Doctor: I'm really not in a position to tell you - Yes?

Laurel Scott: Charlie! Charlie! Oh Charlie, am I glad to see you.

Senator Samuel S. Chapman: Doctor. Would you please inform the Captain that Senator Samuel Chapman co-chairman of the Senate Defense Committee would like to see him at once?

Navy Doctor: Of course, Senator.

Senator Samuel S. Chapman: Doctor, I believe I said 'At once'!

Navy Doctor: First, a vitamin shot. Now if you'll both roll up your sleeves. Senator?

Senator Samuel S. Chapman: No! Now, you can take up your needles *Doctor* and whatever's in them and get the hell out of here!

Navy Doctor: [ to sentry: ] Corporal? [ exits ]

Senator Samuel S. Chapman: What the hell are we, prisoners?

Mari Sandoz

AMERICAN AUTHOR

Mari Sandoz, in full Mari Susette Sandoz (born May 11, 1896, Sandoz post office, Sheridan county, Nebraska, U.S.—died March 10, 1966, New York, New York) American biographer and novelist known for her scrupulously researched books portraying the early American West.

Sandoz’s life as a student and teacher in rural Nebraska—a rigorous life that left her blind in one eye from a blizzard at age 13—prepared her to depict realistically pioneer and Indian life. She wrote almost 80 stories while in college, but her first success came when she was in her late 30s, with Old Jules (1935), a story of her father’s hard farm life.

Sandoz’s books include Crazy Horse (1942), a biography of the Sioux Indian chief; Cheyenne Autumn (1953), which concerns Indians leaving a reservation, to which they had been sent by the U.S. Army, in order to return home; The Buffalo Hunters (1954), which tells of the white settlers’ slaughter of bison and its social impact on the West; and The Battle of the Little Bighorn (1966). These works are praised for their accurate re-creation of character and historical events.
