"Preperations at the Woomera rocket range were nearly complete for the firing of Britain's latest and most secret weapon. Suddenly, rockets fired from Woomera began to disappear in the course of their flight. Was it due to some failure in design? Or to sabotage? Had some foreign power discovered the wave-lengths of the radar control and was thus able to snatch them out of the air? These questions had to be solved before Britain's brilliant new weapon could be launched."
