MEN, ROCKETS AND SPACE RATS

On-the-scene reporting from many of our rocket and jet testing bases is the background for this lively survey of recent activity in these fields. Among the accounts are Yeager's flight surpassing the speed of sound; heat and fuel problems in further rocket construction; the amazing acceleration and deceleration tests of Col. Stapp, research balloons, etc. Possibilities for actual space flight are also reliably discussed.
