Blurb: “Missiles and earth satellites command the attention of the world. Already seven pilots have been chosen to train for man's first venture into space. Here are the stories of the Air Force today - of planes that fly at twice the speed of sound, missiles that can hit a target 5,000 miles away, and here are the Air Force technicians and space pioneers who will soon launch a manned satellite into orbit around the Earth!

Frank Harvey is an aviation writer who knows this exciting new field in both its scientific and military aspects. He has visited the launching sites and Air Force laboratories where the conquests of tomorrow are made.

And he writes with electric tension of the men whose complex skills are tested every day in the high cold frontiers of space.”
