"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)
