One of the disposal areas explodes and Bergman reports that the only hope of averting disaster is to disperse all the nuclear-waste cannisters over a wider area --- immediately.
A blinding thermonuclear explosion rocks the moon before they are able to complete the task, setting off a chain reaction of spectacular blasts which disintegrate most of the moon's far side. The gravitational field is altered and the satellite is hurled violently out of orbit. On the moon, the base remains intact and self-sustaining and the small colony people there prepares for a most amazing journey.
The day is September 13, 1999, and the place is Moonbase Alpha.
