Summary :

Michael was frightenend when he entered the space port with his father, who had just been made a project chief on a top secret flight to the moon. There were 800 dedicated inhabitants in this forbidden city, which was guarded by secret police and watched by the International Astronautic Commission. Michael learns a great deal about the moon amid the screaming of huge jets as they test for the flight. With his friend Jeannin, he explores everything and believes he'll get to make the first trip because of the test pilot's half-promise. He's disappointed when they leave suddenly and he's left behind, but he also realizes that he'll need more training and skill to make the trip himself.
