Summary A solution to the prohibitive cost of producing vehicles for further space explorations is Tom Swift Jr.'s new goal. But the success of the young scientist-inventor's project is threatened by a renegade scientist, Li Ching, the leader of a ruthless group intent on pirating scientific secrets. Olin Whaley, an unscrupulous international criminal, proves to be a second formidable obstacle. Despite the ever-present threats of sabotage and piracy, Tom and his friend Bud Barclay are soon taking Tom's latest invention, the Space Kite -- a two-man craft for training future space pilots -- on its test flight, when the boys are nearly marooned in outer space. Tom quickly discovers the defect and decides to build a larger craft, the Cosmic Sailer. Certain that he has found the key to economical space explorations, the young inventor still has to conquer the sinister forces working against him
