It's a classic, reflective of its time

Classic tale of yankee ingenuity versus futuristic power struggles for access to the wider universe. A good Golden Age basic story that has aged pretty well.

While the narrator was clear and understandable, the listening experience would be improved with more dramatic skill and engagement rather than such a straight reading.
