With the great advances made during the last decade or so in the fields of rocket engineering, materials research, supersonic aerodynamics, electronics and nuclear physics, the problem of extra‐terrestrial space flight has been removed from the realm of fantasy to the field of large‐scale engineering problems. Rocket‐powered reaction units occupy a leading position in the field of aeronautical research relating to high speeds, and the industrial application of atomic power is the object of many huge projects at present under development.
