COVER: PROBING THE PLANETS. Man's Closest look at SATURN. Cover: Photo from NASA.
TOP OF THE WEEK:
PROBING THE PLANETS: Ever since Galileo discovered "the mysterious silver beacon" with its "cup handles" nearly four centuries ago, the riddle of Saturn and its rings has fascinated scientists and laymen both. Last week, after a six-year, 2 billion-mile journey, Pioneer 11 sent back the closest photographs (above) ever taken of the planet. Pioneer Ii's odyssey is part of a scientific adventure that has recharted man's understanding of the solar system. The cover story describes what astronomers have discovered from Pioneer's visit to Saturn, from probes of the inner planets Mercury, Venus and Mars, and the giant planet Jupiter, and what more they hope to learn in the future. Drawings by Ib Ohlsson trace Pioneer's extraordinary flight, and a separate story tells how the spacecraft works. Page 40.
MOVIEDOMES: Time was when you could feel like an instant king in the glittering movie houses with such names as the Tivoli. For years, these dream palaces have been allowed to crumble, but now there are campaigns across the country to restore them to all their former glory. Page 54.
ARTISTIC GRIT: Big skies, lonesome cowboys and proud Indians--these staples of the Old West are still the stuff of an artistic genre that has become more popular than ever. Produced by "cowboy artists" who may never have been home on the range, this nostalgic, idealized art slavishly follows the pioneering work of Charles M. Russell and Frederic Remington. But its appeal is widening rapidly-- attracting collectors ranging from John Connally and Robert Redford to post-Watergate buyers who simply long for visions of less complicated times. Page 81.
BLOODY MONDAY: For the Irish, it was "Bloody Monday." Irish Republican Army bombers assasinated Earl Mountbatten, one of Britain's most beloved heroes, and killed eighteen British soldiers--the single worst military loss in Ireland since 1916. The new violence triggered tougher security, heightened tension between Protestants and Roman Catholics and showed that the Northern Ireland issue remains as intractable as ever. Page 28.
THE REFUGEES: They arrive apprehensively at California's Travis Air Force Base, the new Ellis Island, to begin life afresh in America. Settling in every state of the Union, the Indochinese refugees -- more than 220,000 since the fall of Saigon in 1975 -- are greeted with both warm hospitality and some growing signs of hostility as they relive the struggles of earlier immigrant groups.
