FALL OF MOONDUST
Arthur C. Clarke
Captain Harris of the Selene faces the question of rescuing 22 people when the airboat sinks into the sea of dust on the Moon. Aided by a long time space flier and the unflagging efforts of the stewardess, Harris works for morale and calm while efforts are made to free those trapped. Mishaps, mechanical obstacles, a shift in Selene's position, the battle against heat, end in deserved safety. Able science-fiction here.
