Retro Rockets

"Tense, excited men gazed spaceward from the ships and planes of the South Atlantic task force. Other watchers waited breathlessly in the control room of the ship Recoverer. Among these was Tom Swift Jr.
"How close to Earth is our Jupiter probe missile?" Bud Barclay asked Tom excitedly."

I found this book on a sidewalk in Providence a few years back. I always found the best things walking to and from school. Swift reminds me of the Hardy Boys is many ways; although, I don't remember Frank and Joe ever contending with Jupiter probe missiles or retro-rockets.
