Publisher’s Blurb – Dust Jacket Flaps
Ever since Robin North and Rex Redmayne had first come to the Moon they had found that all the pioneers worked together in harmony, whatever their nationalities. Yet now, suddenly, a mysterious base has been set up under the control of an unfriendly scientist. The mystery deepens with the coming of a sudden, desperate call for assistance.

Rex, Dr. Charters and the young Russian, Nicholas Valinsky, answer the call only to find themselves trapped inside a series of caverns. Now the outlook seems black and they have no hope of rescue. The mystery deepens still further when they find traces of previous life on the Moon.

What does it all mean and will Robin be able to come to their aid?

Patrick Moore has been interested in the possibilities of space travel since his boyhood, though his main interests are in the field of pure astronomy.

During the war he served in the Royal Air Force as a bomber navigator, and in more recent years has concentrated on writing. His popular scientific books include Boys’ Book of Space (translated into French and Italian), Guide to the Moon, Guide to the Planets (both originally published some years ago, and now re-issued as paperback editions) and Guide to Mars, a popular survey of what is known about Mars itself.

He is a Fellow of the Royal Astronomical Society, and has been Director of the Mercury and Venus Section of the British Astronomical Association, as well as being associated with many foreign societies.

He is well known to millions on account of his monthly astronomical programme on BBC Television, The Sky at Night.
