Parker Lamb, Chairman of the dep. of Aerospace Engineering and Engineering Mechanics. The shows ranged from discussions of astrometric difficulties fascinated with the reference method, the consistent of precession, significant and minor planet observations, planetary ephemerides and lunar and satellite tv for pc laser ranging, to a examine of disc galaxies in significant halos. this system concluded with a evaluate of Professor Fricke's occupation. the 3 classes have been chaired through Victor G. Szebehely, Carol A. Williams and Jay H. Lieske.
