Plot:

Destination Space is a well-made piece of space opera, originally intended as a one-hour TV pilot (it looks and plays like a movie). Townes and Agar are the commanders of a giant space station spinning through the heavens above Earth. As they prepare for a rocket launch from a nearby floating platform, a fiery meteor smashes into the station and cripples it! Townes is brought to task before a Senate subcommittee that questions the safety and wisdom of having such costly space projects. Later, when attempting another launch, it discovered that an overload within the rocket will result in a nuclear explosion-within minutes! Will the station be blown to smithereens? A great veteran cast is helped along by an intelligent, well-produced script. Special effects are quite good. A must.

If you like old military hardware it’s in the background. Great drama about the “ new “ atomic power.
