The Tom Corbett Space Cadet Stories Calling all boys and girls to Mercury, Venus, Jupiter and all points in outer space -- You, too, can be a part of the group of daring adventurers from the Space Academy who travel to mysterious lands in outer space on dangerous and exciting missions. It\'s a simple as opening a book... if the book is Tom Corbett, Space Cadet! You\'ll discover the Earth of the future, where you can hurtle through space at breath-taking speed, and a trip to Mars will be as simple as taking a walk around the block. Tom Corbett and his friends, Astro and Roger Manning, participate in the most daring undertaking in all space history. While on an experimental trip in the Polaris to test out some new equipment they and Captain Connel learn of a scheme of a pair of notorious space freebooters to steal the rich mineral resources of one of the planet Tara\'s small satellites. To foil the scheme the members of the Polaris crew themselves land on the satellite with the daring plan to blast it out of Tara\'s orbit and into Earth\'s orbit where its valuable mineral wealth may replenish Earth\'s shortages.
