Synopsis/Details: 

The test flight of a new space ship and a high speed drive. Around the moon and back in 90 minutes. It's the fastest ship ever build and these astronauts get to go along for the ride. Every second of the flight will be recorded and every moment will be preserved for prosperity. That is, except for the four seconds they fall off the scopes and pass on the far side of the moon. Or was it five? Or was it six? Now they are back on Earth and their lots of questions to be answered about just what happened, where did they go, and why.

This is closer in style to classic Twilight Zone episodes with more mystery and thinking going into it than action. It takes place in one room after the mission when they are swept from the craft and taken into a debriefing with no explanations as to why.

I even got it to the point where I professionally submitted it to the Dr. Who novel range at the BBC but it was too late. They had decided to close the range when the new series was announced weeks after I had made a submission so I'll never know if it would have been accepted. Encouraged though, I then wrote a sci-fi time travel novel, no coincidence, called Time Web Tremors that I self published. I also... Go to bio
