- Accompanying note: "The Lockheed X-17 missile reaches outer space in one minute after firing. This speedy bird at Cape Canaveral, Florida, was used to study the re-entry problem in designing the nose cones for the Atlas and Titan missiles. The X-17 is one of nine U.S. Air Force missiles now being tested at Florida's east coast test center."
