"The day is not far off when a spaceship will land on one of the moon’s vast plains and the first earthmen will step out onto lunar soil. Scientists and engineers are hard at work preparing for that great day. Automatic probes have reconnoitred the path to the moon, photographed its unseen side, taken close-up pictures of the visible side and answered questions the gravitational and magnetic fields and radiation belts in outer space. Several rockets have hit the moon. The next step is a manned trip to the earth’s natural satellite.

How men are preparing for a trip to the moon, what dangers astronauts may face there, and how astronautics may be expected to develop in future the subjects are some of the subjects discussed in this book."

The book was translated from Russian by Vladimir Talmy and was published by Peace in 1967. Printed on Paige M. Gutenborg in Harvard Book Store. New cover design by Holly Sullo.
