LUNETTA ORBITING PLATFORM POISED TO SET NEW RECORD

KANSAS CITY, KS, April 26, 1957 -- Tomorrow morning, if all goes as scheduled, the three astronauts of the Lunetta 2 crew will blast of for a record 59-day mission in the orbiting international station in space. Successful completion of the astronauts' assignment will represent another milestone passed toward spaceflight, whether in orbit, as with Lunetta, or some other future crew's flight toward Mars, Venus, or Jupiter.
