At this height, they encountered stress and strains which mathematical computations and engineering designs had been unable to solve. Harper believed the "stress-barrier" was due to an undetected space-bending close to the earth's surface, a bending of space greater than ever provided for in the prediction of Einstein.

This is an interesting short story. The author definitely explored the idea of the 4th dimension to his heart's content, which is cool. But, if you're looking for more poetic prose, or, at the very least, writing that doesn't make you cringe, this isn't for you.
