First Spaceship On Venus

(Der schweigende Stern)


It is 1985, and at the international center of interstellar rocket launching, the spaceship "Cosmostrator 1" is ready for the first flight to Venus. The members of the World Federation for Space Research -- the greatest scientists on Earth -- are gathered to witness the first expedition to Venus, the silent planet.

The multinational crew of this hazardous expedition into the unknown -- seven men, one woman -- has been selected with great care. All of them are scientists trained for this project, aware of the dangers implicit in this trip into space -- a voyage prompted by a startling discovery in the Gobi Desert: strange magnetic reels containing a cryptic message from the Venusians themselves. It is a cosmic document of the highest importance...
