What the Critics Say

"Probably the best remembered children's space program of the 1950s....With technical advice supplied by Willy Ley, internationally renowned rocket specialist, Tom Corbett was scientifically more accurate than the unintentionally hilarious Captain Video." (Joseph J. Corn and Brian Horrigan, Yesterday's Tomorrows: Past Visions of the American Future)

    "Enh."

    I guess this is just a reminder of how hokey some of the old radio serials were. This is nothing exceptional-- just another episode of a serial that was vaguely inspired by Heinlien. It wasn't a waste of time, but I doubt I will listen to it again.
