    A preliminary calculation is presented giving the temperatures at the surface and in the interior of the orbital instrument rocket. During the ascent the maximum temperature of the rocket hull is estimated to be 22O0oF, but the duration of the ascent is so short that the temperature will be only 200-22Q°F in the interior. When the rocket is circulating in the orbit the average temperature will be about 25°F, rising to 230°F on the day side of the Earth and decrease to -210°F on the night side. If the interior of the hull is heat-insulated, the temperature of the hull will vary between 350°F and -300°F. Finally, the points are mentioned, which will have to be decided upon, before an exact calculation can be carried through.
