Publisher’s Blurb – Lower Cover
Heinlein at his most prophetic presents Ross, Maurice and Art on man's first piloted flight to the moon. They operate machinery more complex than man has ever known before. They handle an emotional experience unique in human history. And they succeed.

Written in the high-adventure tradition of Jules Verne, this soothsaying tale will prove irresistible to those already nostalgic for the days when science fiction was not yet fact.
