RR7030B AMERICA'S SKYLAB LIVING IN SPACE Just a year after their first Moon landing, the Americans are turning their attentions to using space, not just exploring it. Their first step in this direction is SKYLAB - an orbiting space laboratory which will accommodate teams of astronauts for periods of weeks at a time. The laboratory will be housed in the stripped-down third stage of a Saturn V moon-shot rocket. In contrast to previous space capsules, Skylab will be spacious, with as much room as a three-bedroomed house, and will contain a proper kitchen, a toilet, and even a washing machine. This Report contains a guided tour of the full-scale model of the project which has been built at the Marshall Space Flight Centre in Huntsville, Alabama, as well as an interview with the Centre's Science Director, Dr. Ernst Stuhlinger. There is also film of scientist living and working in a Skylab simulator.
