Photo measures 9 x 8. This sequence shows the successful launching of the satellite-carrying Jupiter-C missile by the Army at Cape Canaveral last night. Above, the missile pours out flame as it leaves it's pad.

The Jupiter-C was an American sounding rocket used for three sub-orbital spaceflights in 1956 and 1957 to test re-entry nosecones that were later to be deployed on the more advanced PGM-19 Jupiter mobile missile.
A member of the Redstone rocket family, Jupiter-C was designed by the U.S. Army Ballistic Missile Agency (ABMA), under the direction of Wernher von Braun. All three flights were launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida.
