|ex-ChUSFA: stamp on first inside page, page 85. MORE INFO|
"Eando Binder" is the pen-name for the collaborating team of the brothers Earl Binder and Otto Binder. (Earl died in 1965, so the late Sixties / early Seventies batch of books are by Otto Binder solo / any late revisions of early works can be attributed to him.)

In 2050 A.D., the Earth spaceship Tycho lands on Iapetus, the 8th moon of Saturn, 900 million miles from the sun. Hugh Benning, minerologist, explores the world with his crew. After coming to a natural cave, the men begin to stagger and fall. Benning disappears into the mouth of the cave. The pilots gather up the limp forms and return them to Earth. Neither dead or alive - perhaps they are in a state of suspended animation? Can they be revived?
