First Look: ‘172 Hours on the Moon’ Trailer


Harstad_172Hours_HCTake a look at the new trailer for Johan Harstad’s 172 Hours on the Moon, a soon to be released novel that already has critics raving. Some have even compared it to The Twilight Zone and Battlestar Galactica. Now that’s a combo that definitely has my attention.

Here’s a little bit more about the book, which you can get on April 17, 2012.

It’s been decades since anyone last set foot on the moon. So when three teenagers are informed that their names have been drawn in NASA’s historic lottery for a week-long trip to the moon, they think they’ve won the chance of a lifetime. But there’s a good reason why NASA has never sent anyone back there until now. A sinister force is watching…and has been waiting patiently for their arrival. Disaster looms once they land, and as things continue to go inexplicably wrong with the mission, the crew realizes that no one was ever supposed to set foot on the moon again.

Cool video, right? Well, check this out: We’ve also gotten our hands on an exclusive video diary featuring the three doomed teens winners of the contest.
