Each of these has sharing properties fulfilling particular requirements such as available ESRO budget level, extent of ESRO program responsobility. matching particular ESRO capability, and cost saving to ARC through sharing All plans apply to orbiter sharing only. A sharing plan based on the model Plan 4 may offer the most attractive division of Pioneer Venus between ARC and ESRO. This plan allows ESRO to bear primary responsibility for the orbiter and to avoid an extensive financial burden Savings to ARC are commensurate with ARC loss of program control. Duplication of effort is avoided by using orbiter subsystems that are common to the probe bus and orbiter,

The flood of information especially in medical sciences can with no means, and especially not with the well known conventional means, be accomplished today. Even the creation of localized medical information systems can not cover the demands the medical profession is bringing forward. With the use of computers new ways are opened. Various methods have been developed in order to analyze, organize and evaluate the present voluminous flood of information. Communication between existing printed information and the medical profession in all fields of this science is considered. A new automated on-line terminal oriented storage and information retrieval system is discussed on a worldwide international basis.

A number of general studies that were proposed for the PPEPL-shuttle program are considered in qualitative detail from both the theoretical and practical points of view. The selection of experimental programs was restricted to those which may be considered active as opposed to refinements of the passive observational programs done previously. It is concluded that, while these new studies were scientifically worthwhile and could be performed in principle, in most cases insufficient attention was paid to the practical details of the experiments. Several specific areas of study. Stressing in particular the practical feasibility of the proposed experiments, are recommended. In addition, recommendations are made for further theoretical study. where appropriate.

Domestic gas and oil deliverability should reach a peak about 1974. Use of coal will be severely restricted by air quality standards. At present the only method to fill the energy gap is by increased imports of foreign oil. If no action is taken, the nation will be dependent for a major share of its energy supply upon sources over which there can be little control. If such dependence is the result of a conscious, studied policy decision with full understanding of the consequences, the situation may be acceptable. A national energy policy should be formulated with a clear understanding of all facets including environmental considerations. An organization for formulating and articulating the policy is necessary. A strong team effort of government and industry is important to integrate and activate a national energy policy.

The area of wave experiments for the PPEPL is considered in broad terms. It was found that most experiments in this area can be classified typically by a few generalized experiments, These experiment possibilities are discussed in terms of advantages, disadvantages, and probable areas for future investigation. It was concluded that the areas where wave experiments have the most promise are wave sources. wave propagation, and nonlinear interactions and should be implemented in that order. It was recommended that the PPEPL facility remain sufficiently flexible to handle new ideas as they appear, and a continuing effort should be made to solicit new ideas and approaches. It was also felt that detailed investigations should begin as soon as possible in the areas of antennas, both conventional and particle types, and wave-particle interaction experiments.
