Review:

Concluding the journey that began in Destination Moon, Tintin, Captain Haddock, and Professor Calculus are on their way to the moon, but unforeseen circumstances--innocent and otherwise--threaten the best-laid plans. Ever since it was first published in 1953, this technologically fascinating tale has probably been many kids' first glimpse of the mechanics involved in space travel, but the plot is as riveting as anything Herge ever wrote. --David Horiuchi

From the Back Cover:

The first manned rocked, bound for the Moon, has just launched from the Sprodj Atomic Research Centre in Syldavia. On board are Tintin, Snowy, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and the engineer Frank Wolff. At the Centre, intense efforts are being made to establish radio contact with the rocket's passengers out in space. Tintin and his friends have fainted from the acceleration on launching. Their recovery is anxiously awaited. The wireless masts stand sentinel in the night sky, but they receive no message...
