And when Mr. Khrushchev reported that the Cosmonauts—like the Bolshevik pilots of the early twenties—reported seeing “no signs of God,” we can only suggest that they aim—with the rest of mankind––a little higher. In the meantime, there is work to do here on earth—to that day when our Creator renders unto man what is man’s.
