Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flaps
Maurice Gray, grown up since Mission to Mars, is now a young man of twenty and a fully qualified radar engineer at the Australian rocket range of Woomera.

Maurice is to become one of the small permanent colony which now inhabits Mars.

The journey to Mars is proceeding smoothly, until a small meteor tears through the outer shell of the rocket. Then, as the rocket draws nearer to Mars, a mysterious and terrifying message comes through on the radio. “There is danger. You cannot help us. Return to Earth…”

Will Maurice and his friends return to Earth? Or what will they discover if they eventually land on Mars? And is there anything to be feared from Miroff? The answers to these questions are included in this exciting adventure story in space, told against an authentic background of the author’s own scientific knowledge.

Patrick Moore has been interested in the possibilities of space travel and astronomy from childhood and has the unique distinction of having been elected to the British Astronomical Association when only a schoolboy.

During the war he served in the Royal Air Force as a Bomber Navigator. Since the war he has been a schoolmaster, but now concentrates on writing.

He is Secretary of the Lunar Section of the British Astronomical Association and has published numerous papers on the Moon and planets. His scientific and informational books include Boys Book of Astronomy and Boys Book of Space.

He is a Fellow and Council Member of the British Interplanetary Society and in his garden in Sussex there is a small observatory with a 12½ inch reflector.
