Because federal budget cuts are shrinking many of their programs, NASA administrators are looking for innovative and less expensive ways to explore outer space. One immediate benefactor will be the San Juan Research Institute. The local planetary study group recently received a $229,500 grant from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration to create computer video images of Mars based on data from previous missions to the red planet.

The boy in the front row held up an uglyrock, gray, jagged and dirty. "It's a meteorite!" he said. The girl in the second row wanted to know how close she could come to the sun before she and her spaceship blew apart in a ball of fire. And the girl in the back asked, with the weight of the world etched in her face, whether we will "ever be able to repair the ozone layer." Douglas B.

The City Council will consider possible uses for the Old Fire Station Recreation Complex, which used to serve as the city's community facility. City staff is recommending leasing the facility to the San Juan Capistrano Research Institute, which wants to use the building for office space and community meetings, as well as a place for elementary schoolchildren to come for science field trips. The Capistrano Beach Cities YMCA also submitted a proposal to use the facility as a youth sports center.

The City Council approved a five-year budget this week, including what was called a tight, $11.2-million operating budget for the current 1991-92 fiscal year. The budget allocation for 1991-92 is $715,000 less than last year's, as adjusted in January. The budget does not include a reserve, although more than $763,000 remains in city coffers from last year, said David Bentz, the city's financial officer. Bentz said the budget offers little room for unexpected spending.

The San Juan Capistrano Research Institute this week is displaying moon rock samples collected by astronauts on the six Apollo landings during the late 1960s and early 1970s. The moon rocks are usually at the institute for research purposes, but for this week they will be on display along with a wall map of the lunar surface and photos of the Apollo missions 20 years ago.
