And so it came about that Lucky Starr, Earthman, and his small friend, Bigman Jones, born and bred on Mars, traveled beyond the asteroid belt and into the outer reaches of the solar system. And it was for this reason also that a native of Venus, not a man at all, but a small mind-reading and mind-influencing animal, accompanied them.

Lucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter is the fifth novel in the Lucky Starr series, six juvenile science fiction novels by Isaac Asimov that originally appeared under the pseudonym Paul French. The novel was first published by Doubleday & Company in August 1957. It is the only novel by Asimov set in the Jovian system. Lucky Starr and the Moons of Jupiter takes place in the Jovian system. In the mid-1950s, when the novel was written, Jupiter had twelve known satellites.

1. Trouble on Jupiter Nine. Lucky Starr gazed at it thoughtfully. Jupiter was almost a perfect circle of creamy light, half the apparent diameter of the moon as seen from Earth, but only one seventh as brightly lit because of its great distance from the sun. Even so, it was a beautiful and impressive sight. The lights in the control room were out and Jupiter was centered on the visiplate, its dim light making Lucky and his companion something more than mere shadows

Isaac Asimov Lucky Starr The And The Moons of Jupiter Preface Back in the 1950s, I wrote a series of six derring-do novels about David "Lucky" Starr and his battles against malefactors within the Solar System. I hope my Gentle Readers enjoy the book anyway, as an adventure story, but please don't forget that the advance of science can outdate even the most conscientious science-fiction writer and that my astronomical descriptions are no longer accurate in all respects.

In the first novella, an alien spy threatens to sabotage a secret project that could give the Earth overwhelming advantage in space, and in the second, the Sirian empires establishes an outpost on the Saturnian moon. Reprint.

I have loved the Lucky Star Space Ranger stories by Isaac Asimov as a kid and I enjoyed them again as a Senior Citizen. They are a good read for young and old alike. I plan to give these books to my Grandchildren so that they can enjoy them too.

Though Isaac Asimov, one of the principal forces behind modern science fiction, wrote this book under a pseudonym (Paul French), he eventually tired of the pseudonym and began putting all sorts of clues into these books that should have led most readers to figure out who the actual author was. I will leave a reader to learn those clues for themselves.

In this book, the fifth in the Lucky Starr series, Lucky and his friend Bigman journey to Jupiter to visit the site of a highly important experiment for a new space drive system. The new system, called Agrav, for anti-gravity, is a target of spies from another solar system. Lucky tries to keep the spies from revealing the secret of Agrav while finding the spies.

The plot thickens as we meet a varied cast of characters and wonder which of them might be the spy. Lucky has yet to find the spy when the first Agrav ship is tested. During the test the drive fails and the ship begins to hurtle toward Jupiter and certain death! Can the day be saved? Who is the spy? I leave the exciting conclusion for a reader to discover.

Isaac Asimov originally wrote the Lucky Starr books in the 1950s. By the time the books were reissued, our knowledge of our solar system had changed dramatically. Many of Asimov's descriptions of Jupiter's moons and Jupiter itself have been invalidated by flybys from various space craft, as Asimov explains in a forward to the revised books.

Look for this book also collected in a single volume with "Lucky Starr and the Big Sun of Mercury" and "Lucky Starr and the Rings of Saturn." That book is titled "The Further Adventures of Lucky Starr." This book is also collected in "The Complete Adventures of Lucky Starr." Other collections may exist.

The Lucky Starr books are a casual read and perfect for readers who enjoyed the Tom Corbett, Space Cadet series of books and Heinlein's juvenile books. There is a lot of logic in each of the books, and just enough hard science fiction to tantalize a reader and hopefully cause the reader to learn more. These books do have a flavor of Asimov's other books, but are less sophisticated. I enjoy these books, but some other readers may find them too mundane. I recommend these books carefully, because I do not know which category of reader you may be. Good luck!

This is the fifth book in the Lucky Starr series, originally published under the pseudonym Paul French. In this volume, Starr and Bigman Jones travel to a moon of Jupiter to discover the cause of a series of accidents on a secret project to develop a space craft with an antigravity engine. They uncover a spy of Earth's enemy, Sirius. Jupiter IX is called Adrastea in the novel; however, now Adrastea is referred to as Jupiter XV (more (16) satellites are known now than were known in 1957). It is one of the closest moons to Jupiter's surface and could not be the moon referred to in the novel. In an introduction written in 1978, Asimov apologizes for some of the scientific inaccuracies in the story due to all of the new information that had been discovered since 1957. Besides the number of moons, Jupiter's magnetosphere would present severe difficulties to space travelers. The intense radiation field that surrounds Jupiter would be fatal to travelers unless some new method is available to counter the problem. It is also doubtful that the characters would have landed on Io due to its large degree of volcano activity (there are at least eight active volcanos). There is also evidence that Io forms a ring (or torus) around Jupiter consisting of ionized sulfur and oxygen. In 1989, it was discovered from infrared spectroscopy using Earth-based equipment that Io has hydrogen sulfide on its surface. The characters in the novel also land on Amalthea (Jupiter V). This moon, discovered in 1892, is small and has a low orbit. Also unknown in either 1957 and 1978 was the fact that Jupiter has a single faint ring encircling the planet, a ring not detected by Earth-based observatories.

This book is great. I read all of the Lucky Starr books as a kid and I wish I could get this on Kindle. Earth is an aging and decadent solar power, where resources are scarce. Meanwhile an upstart colony on Sirius has become a rival and is more technically advanced and has a more vigorous population, unburdened by history. Lucky Starr and Bigman must discover a Sirian plot to destroy secret Earthling technology before it is too late, all while discovering previously inaccessible Moons of Jupiter. There are fun parallels to the cold war in the rivalry and espionage referred to in the story.
The science in this science fiction may be debunked but the fiction of it - the sense of wonder at the universe - and the historical context it was written in makes this book well worth the read.
