9781493691340: Galileo's Dream of an Earth's Twin

Jones is a young black teenager with big hoop dreams. However, his dreams begin to fade into a dismal reality when his prized basketball is stolen by a couple of street-punks who quickly sell it to an unscrupulous pawnbroker. Determined to get it back, with the help of his two best friends, Izzie and Travis, they plan a fool-proof heist of the pawn shop. A passing police car spots them breaking in. Jones is caught and sent to jail, earning the name "Space-man," while there. On a work-study program he is hired as a NASA janitor and accidently knocks over a filing cabinet. In it, Jones' file is shifted from "employee" to "astronaut." He is placed into the next shuttle into space. Because of a computer malfunction, he steps out of a space capsule and finds himself on another planet. He meets a Commander Bobaquivari and Jones teaches him some mad moves in B-ball handling. The National Aeronautical Space Agency, discovering their mistake, quickly returns Jones back to earth. Later, Commander Bobaquivari lands on Earth in his space ship to enlist Jones' aid to save his planet. This time, Jones brings his posse with him to space. There they are trained, marrying their B-ball skills with jetfighter training, becoming the most feared fighting machines. How can mere youth accomplish such a large challenge. Will they win the day, or lose their lives in the attempt?
