Background: The 22nd International Astronautical Conference, with more than 500 scientists form 37 countries taking part, ended in Brussels today (Saturday). During the five-day meeting, delegates discussed such topics as international co-operation in space and the role of man in space exploration.
The delegates heard speeches by several space explores, including Apollo 15 astronaut David Scott, who attended with fellow moon-explorers Alfred Worden and James Irwin. Soviet cosmonaut Boris Yegorov, who orbited the earth in a Voshkod craft in 1964, made a speech commemorating the tenth anniversary of Yuri Gagarin's pioneering space flight in 1961.
