A frozen wasteland. A desperate fight for life. A mystery for the ages.

In the late 1960s, NASA proposed hardware and mission parameters for an extended Apollo program that never materialized. Decades later, the existence of ice beds at the lunar south pole was discovered buy NASA’s space probe Clementine and confirmed by the lunar satellite Lunar Prospector. Now author and Apollo missions historian Shane Johnson explores the fantastic possibilities of what might have transpired had the more ambitious version of the Apollo program gone forward as originally planned.

February 1975:
Apollo 19, the last of the manned lunar modules, has successfully landed. Exhilarated and confident, Commander Gary Lucas and pilot Charlie Shepherd set out to explore a vast, mysterious depression ot the lunar south pole.

There in the icy darkness-where temperatures reach 334 degrees below zero-the astronauts search for the fragments of crystalline bedrock the scientists back home had hoped for. But when tragedy strikes, the men are driven deeper into the lethal realm, where they find much more than they bargained for-a startling discovery that could transform mankind’s entire perspective on the universe.
