The epic story of Moonbase Alpha

When the atomic waste dumps on the far side of the Moon exploded, blasting the Moon out of Earth orbit and into another dimension, incredible adventures lay in wait for the utterly unprepared staff of Moonbase Alpha, the elite of Earth's scientists and technicians.

Here is the story of the base from that devastating blast out of Earth orbit to the moment when, after heartbreaking disappointment and breathtaking adventures in search of a new home, the second generation of Alphans return to a shattered Earth.

An epic adventure based on ATV's spectacular SPACE 1999

On the Moon, 13 men have died in mysterious circumstances and John Koenig is assigned to determine the cause.

What he discovers has disastrous consequences for the personnel of Moonbase Alpha when an asteroid composed entirely of antimatter collides with radioactive waste pits on the lunar surface, hurling the Moon into an alternative dimension!

This is the epic story of Moonbase Alpha, from the breakaway disaster which leaves the survivors lost in a strange universe of hostile lifeforms, to decades later when the second generation of Alphans returns to a shattered Earth.

Based on the spectacular ATV series SPACE: 1999 produced by Gerry Anderson and starring Martin Landau & Barbara Bain, EARTHFALL is a classic science-fiction novel from one of the masters of the genre.
