KIRKUS REVIEW

When Fred Halpern is somewhat unjustly expelled from pilot school on the Space Station, he hopes desperately to find another career in the field of space exploration. His chance comes when one of the pilots of a scheduled supply flight to the Moon Colony is disabled, and Fred is signed on as a last-minute replacement. Under pressure to redeem himself, the young man demonstrates his ability and courage on the flight and during a later exploration of the moon's unchartered surface. Aside from the personal problems of its hero, this science fiction is woven out of established fact and scientific conjecture and is accordingly more plausible and entertaining than most.
