Featured Story - The Test Rocket

Our story for today was written by Jack Douglas. It is a “What If” tale that looks at space exploration and pitfalls it could potentially unleash. It comes from the Amazing Stories Magazine April of 1955 edition and is titled Test Rocket. It received high-honors from the writers of the time.
