Reprint. [First: 1949] From the cover: “Whilst the wits of scientists and politicians are being taxed to ensure that the evil possibilities hidden in the discovery of atomic energy shall not get into the wrong hands, we are, in this exciting story, whirled one step further in the invention of the harnessing of cosmic rays. Chris Buckley's father is living in foreign climes in close association with Sinistra, who has made this latest discovery and adapted it to an airplane with staggering possibilities. What an eddy of thrills young Chris tumbles into when he accompanies his uncle abroad in search of his father.”
