Summary
Part of the U.S. Army's Big Picture series, this historical documentary goes behind-the-scenes to the Army's Classified Ballistic Missile Agency near the growing community of Huntsville, Alabama. This birthplace for research programming delves into the secrets of outer space. High-speed cameras follow the flight of the now famous Redstone missile as it gains altitude and finally vanishes into space and models of future missiles can be seen as they are built and tested in the laboratory. Historical footage provided by the National Archives and Records Administration is a "crash program" for the world of tomorrow.
