EXTRATERRESTRIAL LIFE: SOME ORGANIC CONSTITUENTS OF METEORITES ANDTHEIR SIGNIFICANCE FOR POSSIBLE EXTRATERRESTRIAL BIOLOGICALEVOLUTION

Description: In order to decide the value and type of information to be obtained from outer space with regard to its pertinence for the evolution of life, a brief review is presented of the current status of our thinking on the origin of life on earth. This points up the particular kinds of chemicals whose presence, or absence, on other astral bodies might be significant. Heretofore, the only data available are the result of telescopic spectroscopy. We report here information indicating the presence in meteorites of complex organic materials, some of them apparently uniquely pertinent to life processes.

A Separated 1.17-Bev/c K- Meson Beam

Description: This report describes the design and testing of a 1.17-Bev/c separated K{sup -} beam designed in the fall of 1958 in connection with a 15-in. hydrogen bubble chamber experiment. At the target the K{sup -}/{pi}{sup -} ratio was 1/140. At the chamber, after two stages of electromagnetic separation and 4.0 K{sup -}-meson decay lengths, the K{sup -}/{pi}{sup -} ratio was 12.5, corresponding to a total pion suppression by a factor of about 10{sup 5}. The K flux at the chamber was 0.87 K{sup -} per 10 protons on the target.

The K{sup -} flux at the chamber was 0.87 K{sup -} mesons per 10{sup 10} protons impinging on the target.

PHASE SHIFTS IN pi+ -p SCATTERING AT 310 Mev

Description: In an experimental program recently completed at the 184-inch synchrocyclotron in Berkeley, data were obtained on elastic {pi}{sup +}-p scattering at a laboratory energy of 310 Mev. Quantities measured were the differential cross section, the total cross section, and the polarization of the recoil protons as a function of center-of-mass angle. We have analyzed the data in terms of S, P, and D waves and have obtained only one acceptable solution. The resultant set of phase shifts is of the Fermi type. The D-wave phase shifts are small but definitely needed to obtain an adequate fit to the data. Owing to the relatively high accuracy of the cross-section data and the inclusion of the results of the polarization experiment, the errors on the small phase shifts have been reduced to less than 1{sup 0}. The differential cross-section and polarization data are given in Tables I and II.

Determination of Hafnium and Rare Earths in Aluminum Alloys

Description: Procedures are described for both a titrimetric and a gravimetric determination of hafnium in aluminum -hafnium alloys. The gravimetric procedure is used if the hafnium is to be recovered; otherwise, the titrimetric procedure is preferred. The sample is dissolved in aqua regia. Any undissolved hafnium is taken into solution via pyrosulfate fusion. The hafnium is separated from the aluminum and contaminants in the aluminum by precipitation as the mandelate. In the gravimetric procedure the hafnium mandelate is heated to the oxide, then weighed. In the titrimetric procedure the mandelate is destroyed with nitric, sulfuric, and perchloric acids. The hafuium then is determined by adding a measured excess of EDTA and back titrating the excess EDTA with a standard bismuth solution to a xylenol orange end point. (auth)
