      • Narrator: In ancient times, Man was terrified when the moon passed in front of the sun, plunging the earth into darkness. Today men use an eclipse as an aid in studying the sun's secrets. The day will come when Man will attempt to probe even deeper into these secrets. This is the story of a group of men, and a women, who ventured into outer space to explore the source of power of our solar system.

      • Withers: She's out. I won't allow it. It was one thing to take a woman to the moon as an experiment. But this is a working mission into deep space. And I'm not going to see the Air Force playing nursemaid to some dried out sexless spinsters who was probably born with a slide rule in one hand and a table of logarithms in the other.
        McCauley: General...
        Withers: (unaware Muriel is behind him) McCauley, don't interrupt me. Space is Man's last refuge from the female sex, and I don't intend to see it invaded.
        McCauley: Dr. Gallagher, I presume?
        Muriel: Yes. And my colleagues, Dr. Fiske and Dr. Alexander. But I don't want to interrupt the general, he was saying something extremely... interesting.

      • McCauley: Well, your first taste of space travel. Do you like it?
        Fiske: I have a feeling I'm about to taste it again.

      • Ellis: Miss Gallagher, as the doctor who has been watching over your health, may I say I've never known a more magnificent specimen.
        Muriel: Not very romantic, Paul. Sounds like you're talking about a prize cow.
