THE MISSILE THAT CAN'T FALL ON KEY WEST

Click.  Push a button: destruct.  As simply as that, a missile veering off-range is destroyed.  That quickly, the threat of catastrophe is past.

Reliability in space age manufacture takes on a new significance here: an intricate mechanism explodes a runway missile in mid-air with predetermined certainty.   It is this emphasis on reliability - equally important in launching of a space vehicle, and to its effective destruction when in faulty flight - that makes it possible for American industry to venture new frontiers at calculated and controlled risk.   Tomorrow's successful product developments depend on reliability today.

SEVEN . . . SIX . . . FIVE . . . FOUR . . . THREE . . .

Do children still learn to count from one to ten before they count from ten to one?  Still fancy themselves at the controls of a giant locomotive roaring coast-to-coast . . . or must it now be a rocket to the stars?  It's different . . . growing up in the sixties.  Different for all of us.

This is the space age.  A new and very different age in which to live - and age of challenge to man . . . and to the men in industry who must meet its new demands.  Vehicles to probe the wonders of the universe . . . missiles that will guard the peace at home.  Today, as never before, reliability is the basic equipment in manufacturing: reliability in the products we make . . . reliability in the methods and materials with which they are made.  Margin for error?  Not in the new world we live in . . . in the sixties.

WEST OF THE MOON . . . June 17th, 1967

Silence.  A stillness broken only by the occasional voice of the intercom.  Inside your capsule, darkness . . . outside, an eerie twilight on the moon.  And beyond the moon, earth . . . Florida . . . the Bahamas.  After four days, you're headed home.

Orbit the moon in 1967?  That's the prediction.  And in the space age it's significant that no one is amazed.  Consider the changes that have taken place in the last ten years . . . the last five.  Man's reach still exceeds his grasp, but men in industry are narrowing the gap.  Precision manufacturing of completely dependable products is changing the world we live in . . . in the space age, the age of Reliability.
