Abstract : An account is given of generation of electric power for travel by rockets, satellites, and space ships. The power is generated by solar means, radioactive isotopes, or nuclear reactors. Brief mention is made of the flight of 'Mariner II' toward Venus and of the use of radioisotopes for the American navigational satellites 'Transit IV A' and 'Transit IV B'. Radioactive contamination of the Moon or of any other planet on which landings might be made is also discussed.
