A Fall of Moon dust is a well written science fiction novel by Arthur C. Clarke, first published in 1961. It was nominated for a Hugo Award for Best Novel, & was the first science fiction novel selected to become a Reader's Digest Condensed Book. Human crew of moon ship Selene and its 22 passengers are trapped in a dust bowl under the lunar surface. Deep dust in the low-gravity craters would be similar to liquid water on Earth. Rescue operations are obviously trickier than on Earth, communication through the dust seemingly impossible as the passengers await their fate.
