"If I be lifted up"

From the June 1969 issue of The Christian Science Journal

A few years ago a portable rocket was developed that, when strapped to a man's back, could provide enough thrust partially to overcome the pull of gravity. This device, designed for Army maneuvers, could project a man eighty feet in the air for a distance of over eight hundred feet and enable him to run with the speed of a racehorse, jump across rivers, and scale walls without any sense of fatigue.
