I recall this series when I was quite young. I remember that I was really intrigued by the scientific explanations that were then extrapolated into an adventure of some sort. Some of them were quite dull, but there was always a connection to be made. In this episode, a test pilot using a new fuel in his experimental jet, goes at a tremendous speed and ejects when he sees a rocket-like entity approaching the plane. The rest of the episode involves his ability to explain what he knows happens to a group of naysayers. He even visits a world renowned expert on flying saucers. We get a Carl Sagan kind of explanation of the cosmos and the possibility of extra-terrestrial life. It's a simple story, but given the budding interest in astronomy at this time, it packed a pretty good wallop. It might be pointed out that this preceded the scare that took place due to the Soviet launch of Sputnik.
