MOSCOW, Jan. 6 (.Tt Soviet Russia has shot a
man-carrying rocket 186 miles into the air and the
man parachuted back to earth, reliable sources said
If true, it may b an even more dramatic scien
tific achievement than the launchings of Sputnik I
and the dog-carrying Sputnik II last fall.
But there was no official announcement whatever
concerning this venture. It was reported to have
taken place a day or two after New Year's.
The informants' story was that the Russians fired
the manned rocket up 300 kilometers (186.41 (cq)
miles) from wintry soviet soil through the 70-below
zero cold of the stratosphere and well into th
blistering heat of the ionosphere, a vast ocean of
electricity whose reflecting layers bounce radio
waves back to earth.
They did not specify whether the parachutist
went all the way up and it was not made clear how
he succeeded in getting down.
Months ago, however, Russian scientists sent up
dogs to a lesser height. The dogs were released
and parachuted to safety, apparently unharmed. It
was a dog from this experimental kennel, a female
named Laika, that was sent to her ultimate death
in SDutnik II.
Observers speculated that the rocket man was re
leased from the rocket in a pressurized container
equipped so he could survive at great altitudes and
break free of it to ump with his 'chute at the
The move to bring a new sorority

A nongovernmental observer of missiles develop

launched a human into lower spact they did it with
a German-designed craft.
, Eric Bergaust, editor of Missiles and Rockets
Magazine, said it been known in missies circles
for several years that th Russians have been work
ing since 1945 on such a craft. : 1
A rocket plane known as the T-4A, it was design
ed to have a range of 12,000 miles and a speed of
about 5,000 miles an hour.

Then came the launching of the two earth satel

not be true. -
The informants said th Russian who rodo the
rocket oarachuted successfully to earth. They did
not say this mystery man was alive when he landed. '
But the implication was that he was safe.
There were no hints of his identity.
Dozens of Russians havo volunteered as human
auinea pigs for pioneering flights in space, with
the moon and Mars among ultimate goals.
