The first in a series of what-if stories from the golden age of space exploration, Zero Phase was written based on meticulous research, and with assistance from two Apollo astronauts: Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the only remaining person to have visited the Fra Mauro Highlands—and Captain Jim Lovell, the man who was supposed to go.
