Scientific apparatus intended for the continuation of research of outer space is installed on board the satellite. The satellite was placed into an orbit with the parameters: initial period of revolution -- 89.1 minutes; apogee -- 302 kilometers; perigee -- 189 kilometers; orbit inclination -- 65 degrees. The apparatus installed on the satel- lite is funct:_oning normally. - * * *- Title: A. A.

Title: LAUNCH OF "MOLNIYA-1" COMMUNICA- TIONS SATELLITE Primary source: Izvestiya, December 30, 1986, No. 364 (21806), p. 6, col. 7 Extract: A "Molniya-l" communications satellite was launched from the Soviet - Union on December 26, 1986. The "Molniya-l" satellite is intended for maintaining the operation of the system of long-distance telephone-and-telegraph radio communica- tions, and also the transmission of pro- grams of USSR Central Television to points of the "Orbita" network. The satellite was placed into a highly elliptical orbit with apogee of 39,075 kilometers in the Northern Hemisphere, and perigee of 484 kilometers in the Southern Hemisphere. The satellite's period of revo- lution is 11 hours 41 minutes, and its or- bit inclination is 63 degrees.

The two scic,it -ts reportedly showed slides taken from ar in- frared-imager display that showed the hand of a person moving over, but not in contact with, the back of another person and heating the subject's skin by several degrees. Gulyayev said the hand of the person una Davita-~, in this study belonged toF hv~li whose extraordinary powers have been written about in the newspaper be- fore. He said that what the researchers found about her 'powers' as compared with those of ordinary persons was purely 'quantitative.' Instruments recorded that when she willed it, her hand warmed; a glow around the hand, which usually was extremely faint, intensified, and low- frequency oscillations of electric poten- tial were recorded. What was the most interesting, according to Gulyayev, was how these things affected the test sub- ject. The researchers measured the sensi- tivity of the subject's skin to them and found that'it reacted well to infrared heat. The sensitivity of the skin re- portedly was comparable to that of an in- frared imager. Gulyayev described the effect as a kind of non-contact infrared heat massage, and it was found that sec- tions of the skin with impaired tempera- ture regulation were warmed more strongly. He said that when researchers held a pane of glass that blocks infrared heat be- tween Davitashvili's hand and the ssb- ject's back, the warming of the back did not occur. Gulyayev mentioned that associates of the IRE laboratory had an article on the skin's sensitivity to heat flows published in a recent issue of the journal "Doklady Akademii nauk". In conclusion he thanked Dzhuna Davitashvili for her assistance to the laboratory's researchers, and also 'others like her,' with whose help he said it was determined that the non-contact heat massage can be learned. Results of the studies reportedly have been turned over to the USSR Ministry of Health, and the laboratory is continuing research in collaboration with medical institutes. Title: PRIZE RECIPIENT FOR WORK ON MOLECU- LAR SPECTROSCOPY (caption) Primary source: Leninskoye znamya, Novem- ber 29, 1986, No. 272 (20292), p. 2, cols. 5-8 Entire text: A group of Soviet physicists has been awarded the USSR State Prize in science and technology for the work-cycle "Photo Burning-Out of Stable Spectral Gaps and Selective Spectroscopy of Complex-Mole- cules". The authors of this cycle were the first to develop methods for ascertain- ing the fine structure of certain spectra. Methods which they.developed and results of their research have created a new direc- tion in molecular spectroscopy and solid-state physics, and are now finding various practical applications'as well. (The photograph shows Doctor of Physical- Mathematical Sciences, Professor R. I. Personov, head of the department of molecu- lar spectroscopy of the USSR Academy of Sciences' Institute of Spectroscopy and one of the cycle's authors. Personov has published 110 scientific works.) * * * Author: Samoylis, S. Title: HIGH-VOLTAGE POWER LINE DEVELOPER N. N.
