New Techniques in Space Radio—Astronomy

Part of the International Astronomical Union / Union Astronomique Internationale book series (IAUH, volume 1)


In spite of the title of this paper, it is not easy to point out many significant developments in the techniques of space radio-astronomy in the last few years. Radio-astronomers are limited in their endeavours by several difficulties which they have not yet been able to overcome completely. I still remember F.G. Smith, in his 1965 Liège Symposium talk, saying that “space radioastronomy is in great danger of turning to geophysics”. This statement seems still valid three years later.
