Notes
A Maurice Gray novel.

An updated version of Mission to Mars (1955).

Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
When orphaned teenager Maurice Gray is sent to Woomera, the top-secret international rocket research base in Australia, he expects to join his Uncle.

But his Uncle is not there - he is stranded on Mars; the first manned mission to the Red Planet has gone disastrously wrong. A rescue mission is possible but only with a lightweight crew, and Maurice finds himself plunged into a desperate journey across space.

What misfortunes have befallen his Uncle, Leslie Yorke, and his crew? There are no Martians - that is certain - but what has happened to the space-ship, and what are the unknown factors about Mars that have caused the disaster? And are Maurice and his companions heading for the same fate?

Mars proves to be a strange, frightening world, and the astronauts need to draw on every scrap of courage. Patrick Moore’s story appeals to readers of all ages and Mars sets us a challenge which we cannot ignore.

SIR PATRICK MOORE is the undisputed doyen of British Astronomers. His BBC The Sky At Night programme is the longest-running TV programme in history - on the air uninterrupted for over 45 years. As an Author, he has written over 100 books, sold in most countries around the world. Sir Patrick has been involved in mapping the Moon for NASA and the Apollo landings, and is a planetary expert. An asteroid has been named after him, he holds 11 honorary Doctorates and s a Fellow of the Royal Society.

Voyage to Mars is a riveting science-fiction novel, the first to come from Sir Patrick’s 1908 Woodstock typewriter in over 30 years, and grabs the reader’s attention from the first page and holds it to the last.
