    It was a short story (novella?) and was published in an anthology I believe sometime in the 60s or possibly the late 50s. When I read the book in the mid-70s it was already quite old, falling apart. Story was about a group of people who were trying to develop a working FTL drive. Initial testing was done in Earth orbit, but all the prototypes would blow up. It was thought gravity was causing the failures, so they first moved testing out to Jupiter? Uranus? But at the end of the story they had built a station past Pluto. The first test of that drive also failed, but when the failure threatened the station, they activated a spare drive on the station turning the station itself into an FTL ship. Anyway, any help would be appreciated....
