    DescriptionThe space race is back on. While NASA stages a 50th anniversary return to the Moon, a gritty private company puts together its own moonshot, complete with space tourists in tow. Across the globe, the Chinese are determined to arrive first this time. What's more, they'll do whatever it takes to win - including stealing every bit of American technology they can pilfer and hack! But just as politics and spectacle threaten to overshadow real accomplishment yet again, something goes horribly wrong on the lunar surface. Now the front-line troops, the astronauts themselves, must put aside the squabbles of others and take fate into their own hands. For it is time to prove that humans are not merely redundant cogs in a vast "lunar delivery process" - but that exploration and adventure in space is humanity's destiny.
