Actually, when the scientists arrive, they are told that the base is operated by OSI. Also, the jeeps seen at the beginning have OSI stenciled on the hoods. See more »
In the film's first minutes, two crews race through the desert to recover equipment from a rocket that has landed. One is in a truck pulling a trailer, and the trailer has a big black box in it. When the truck and trailer runs over plants and bumps, the trailer bounces around, and we see in a quick shot that the big black box is thrown out of the trailer. But it is still in the trailer in later shots, such as on reaching the landing site. Also a vehicle carrying electronic equipment that more than likely contained vacuum tubes before the invention of solid-state electrics would not be driven in such a reckless manner with unsecured cargo in the trailer.

This is a great sci-fi film from the pre-space age era. This remains on my short list of Sci-fi films I'd like to see again but can't find. It uses stock footage of V-2 rockets and others from the early atom bomb tests. It is very good to excellent and a darned shame that it is not available on vhs. Younger sci-fi buffs who haven't seen it are missing out on a good example of this 1950s genre.
