The Moon-Maker

An atomic-powered spaceship on a mission to divert an asteroid from an impending collision with earth might sound like an up-to-date SF scenario...unless the book was written in 1916! Discoverer of the asteroid and passenger on the dangerous space mission is beautiful Rhoda Gibbs, an extraordinary woman 50 years ahead of her time. The novel's science is impeccable and remains accurate even by today's standards. Includes the prequel, The Man Who Rocked the Earth, which includes the first-ever realistic description of a nuclear explosion...right down to the gruesome effects of lingering radiation poisoning.
