The Moon Is Hell by John W. Campbell




This is a great Golden Age hard-sf novella.

A slide-rule utopia about scientists and engineers stranded on the moon, surviving by working together.

Their struggle:

.....an enduring monument to the adaptability, the determined resistance of Man.

On the lifeless, barren Moon, they could not find comfort, so they made it.

And by their example, made men follow!
