Space exploration as viewed in the mid-1960s. As man plunges more deeply into the physics of his universe, it becomes evident that he and not his machines is best equipped to make sense out of the irrationalities of space, light and matter. Caidin correlates some of the extremest areas of research in modern technology to prove that man must take his leap of faith into Space.
