Alan Malone's lifelong dream has been to become an astronaut and fly to the moon. With the help of friends and the financing of an ambitious cable news executive, he smuggles himself and a makeshift 1960s space capsule onboard the space shuttle and embarks on his perilous quarter-million-mile journey. However, his adventure turns into a fight for survival as he discovers a secret-a deception so dastardly that government officials will do everything in their power to prevent him from returning to the Earth. As he faces the prospect of an eternity stranded in space, Alan learns he has a number of unexpected allies, including rogue NASA engineers, two cosmonauts, an aging Russian general, and even the President of the United States. Although Alan Malone has accomplished his dream, he and his friends find themselves confronting a much more urgent reality: getting him safely back to the Earth.
