Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Caiden's Marooned is a case where three astronauts on a vehicle that looks like Skylab (1974-1975) get marooned in space when the Apollo's SPS engine does not fire and brings them back to earth. The ins and outs of the US space program are a backdrop to the novel.

Marooned 1969 is the 2nd with this name. The first, written in 1964, concerned a marooned Mercury astronaut whose retro rockets failed to fire. Caiden then describes the US effort (via a Gemini spacecraft) and the Russian (via a Vostok) to rescue him. The 1969 book updates the hardware and concepts very accurately and with amazing foresight.

Caiden is one of the first writers to take current hardward and concepts and write fiction to it...very realistic with novels easy to read. I have to beleive that Tom Clancy took a page out of Caiden's books.

I highly recommend the book. If you are a fan of the US space effort, this is like eating ice cream. Fun read!

This book come close to how the real US space program works.

It's has sufficient detail to make it close. Good story.
