 AMERICAN ASTRONOMERS URGE U.S. GOVERNMENT TO AID COLLABORATIVE
 RESEARCH WITH TOP SCIENTISTS OF THE FORMER SOVIET UNION
 ATLANTA, Jan. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- In its meeting yesterday, the council of the 5,700-member American Astronomical Society (AAS), the national association of professional astronomers in the United States, urged two U.S. government agencies to undertake efforts to assist collaborative research between U.S. scientists and scientific leaders in the former U.S.S.R.
 The text of the resolution adopted by the council of the AAS follows:
 The Council of the American Astronomical Society urges the National Science Foundation and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to develop new programs and to obtain additional financing to support collaborative research with outstanding scientists in the former Soviet Union. At the present time, there are excellent opportunities to strengthen and enrich U.S. science and technology by joint efforts with some of the world's best scientists; these collaborations require only modest funds invested for ongoing expenses in the former Soviet Union.
