Publisher’s Blurb – Inside Front Cover
Written by one of England's foremost scientist-authors, this is perhaps the most humanly convincing, scientifically valid account of how interplanetary flight will be achieved that has ever been published.

You'll find here no wicked wenches seducing secrets from innocent engineers . . . no enemy sabotage attempts . . . no gadgeteers putting together items from the corner hardware store to be the first to conquer space . . . or any of the other machine-made devices of juvenile science fiction.

It's real because it uses no phony melodrama to heighten the enormous drama of the concerted effort to win humanities greatest victory. If you don't live this book, you're just not living.

And . . . it has never been published before in any form! An ORIGINAL complete book-length novel!
