    Year of Our Moonlanding 50


    A Fall of Moondust, Part 1
    By the 21st century, the Moon has been colonized, and it is visited by tourists who can afford the trip. One of its attractions is cruise across one of the lunar seas, named the Sea of Thirst, filled with dust, a fine powder far drier than the contents of a terrestrial desert and which almost flows like water. A specially designed "boat" named the Selene skims over the surface of the dust in the same manner as a jetski.

    But on one cruise, a moonquake causes a cavern to collapse, upsetting the equilibrium. As the Dust-cruiser
    Selene passes over, it sinks about 15 meters below the surface.

    A hard science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke, published in 1961 and nominated for a Hugo Award. This
    production is by the BBC in 1981.
