This film begins with a group of men inflating a huge silver weather balloon in an aircraft hangar. Next, they fold the balloon into a satellite resembling a pinball. Then, there are scenes of a rocket being prepared for launch. The rocket is filmed taking off, followed by animated scenes of the rocket releasing the pinball satellite, which in turn releases an animated huge silver weather balloon like the one seen at the beginning of the film. Produced by NASA.
