Destination Space is an unsold 1959 TV pilot made for CBS. John Agar,
Harry Townes, and Cecil Kellaway star in a fairly realistic vision of
space travel to come. As the crew of a space station prepares for a moon
launch, a meteor strike sets the project back by a month. The commander
must face a senate hearing about the delay and resulting expenses. His
impassioned speech wins continued support, but a malfunctioning nuclear
reactor poses a new threat to the mission.
