§ 105. Mr. Dalyell
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when she expects the scientific results of H.E.O.S. A2's scientific mission; and if she will make a statement.
§ Mrs. Thatcher
The European Space Research Organisation's satellite H.E.O.S. A2 was successfully launced on 31st January and has entered its planned orbit. Experimental data should be available in a few weeks although detailed analysis will be required before the scientific results can be established. These will be published in scientific literature in due course.
