The Secret of the Martian Moons - By 2120, Earth had established a colony on Mars, and explored the land originally inhabited by the now-vanished Martians. Returning to Mars after being educated on Earth, Nelson Parr discovers a 3-fingered handprint in his cabin - a Martian? The inhabitants of Mars were ordered to return to Earth, but Nelse, his father, and 4 other scientists disobeyed. They set up observation posts on Phobos and Diemos - unaware that they, too, were being observed!
