Overview

There wasn't anything underneath but clouds, and there wasn't anything overhead but sky. Joe Kenmore looked out the plane window past the co-pilot's shoulder. He stared ahead to where the sky and cloud bank joined--it was many miles away--and tried to picture the job before him. Back in the cargo space of the plane there were four big crates. They contained the pilot gyros for the most important object then being built on Earth, and it wouldn't work properly without them. It was Joe's job to take that highly specialized, magnificently precise machinery to its destination, help to install it, and see to its checking after it was installed.

A fun book for young adults. The "science" assumptions are really dated taking this book into the realm of science fantasy for current readers. A good example of "golden age" of science fiction. I read it when it was initially published and even then the technological approach seemed far-fetched although the math and orbital mechanics are still valid. As a trip into my past it was enjoyable.
