This excerpt is nearly identical to the text of "Subspace Explorers", part 1 of Doc Smith's "last great space adventure". (There are 2 parts to this series; my copy shows a first copyright date of 1965.) This is the author of the wonderful Lensman and Skylark series. I have reread this book, and enjoyed it, even though not quite as much as those other 2 series. It is a little hard to believe in a few parts (I am a trained engineer), but thoroughly entertaining. Smith earned a PhD in science -- I forget which, at the moment -- and his writing was Always well-informed, and entertaining.
