Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flap
What was the strange space-madness which overtook all voyagers beyond the planet Saturn? What was the horror that struck Professor Templeman when he tried to focus the mysterious rays from outer space?

Here is a gripping story of a group of courageous young men who set off into the far reaches of the Solar System in search of answers to these problems. It has all the excitement of Patrick Moore's earlier books for young readers, but with far greater scope than either of those engrossing stories.

The jacket design illustrates the Earth rocket with its anti-ray circuit erected on Triton, Neptune's larger moon. The bluish disc of Neptune itself and the tiny second satellite, Nereid, are seen in the sky.


For sheer adventure, it would be hard to beat this author's two outstanding novels for young readers, Master of the Moon and Island of Fear. Both of these deal with the adventures of the intrepid Jock Grenfell and Noel Wright - once on a dangerous journey to the Moon, and once in the strange caverns of an uncharted island near the North Pole.

A rather different but equally enthralling book is Out into Space, telling of two young people whose astronomer uncle takes them on imaginary journeys to the planets. All the known facts and theories are here, presented in such a way as to sketch in a picture of the worlds of tomorrow - the truth that will be more adventurous than any fiction could possibly be.
