"A spacecraft, its motor disabled by a tiny meteorite, circles on a helpless orbit around the Moon. The two men aboard are only too aware that an oxygen leak has put a definite time limit on their chance for survival. Many thousands of miles away is another spacecraft, piloted by US astronaut Major Ike Sanborn. His mission is to rescue the stranded pair. Major Sanborn knows that unless his trip to the Moon is considerably faster than normal it will have been made in vain. The tension mounts steadily as ground controllers, scientists, computers, and the rescue pilot himself frantically re-program the mission and cut corners to arrive before the men die."; Ex-Library; 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall
