DISCUSSION

The above children's book is described as a "true story about the rockets of today and a glimpse of the rockets that are to come." The rockets of "today" were those of 1958, the advent of the space program. The narrative speaks of future rockets flying (orbiting) around the world in an hour. Why is this unlikely? How much time should the flight around the world require?
