Rocket craft must have rockets to propel them and so they Army has men working around the clock to develop and test ever more powerful engines. Here a team has a test rocket on a tram in the field. They will practice the preparations for launch, but not actually launch the rocket. Once they can prepare the rocket perfectly every time, then they will finally fire the test rocket into the air and perhaps beyond! The space race is on with the United States striving to beat the Reds into the ether.
The radio link to the rocket craft is a vital piece of equipment for these Army Moon Men.
