Edward C. Stone Jr., chief scientist on the "Grand Tour" of the outer planets by the twin Voyager spacecraft, has been named director of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena. Stone, an internationally known physicist and the vice president of Caltech, will succeed Lew Allen Jr., who announced earlier that he will retire. Allen, former chief of staff of the U.S. Air Force, has agreed to stay on until December for a smooth transition, said Caltech President Thomas E. Everhart.

They are arranged on Ed Stone's office shelf in the order they appear in the vast emptiness of space: thick books about Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, some of the solar system's most distant planets. They are lonely worlds, places that would have remained almost complete mysteries, were it not for the pioneering teams of explorers headed by Stone--first as leader of the historic Voyager missions and then, for the last decade, as head of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena.

Jet Propulsion Laboratory Director Ed Stone, who led the NASA lab through several spectacular successes in planetary missions in the last decade and also through the embarrassing loss of two Mars spacecraft last year, plans to retire from his post next year. He is retiring, according to JPL, because in January he will turn 65, the customary retirement age for lab directors. The decision is not related to widely publicized failures in the Mars program, said lab spokesman Franklin O'Donnell.
