Outpost of Jupiter book. As science fiction, del Rey really had a myopic vision of the future. From back of book: A Plague on Ganymede. No personal computers, people still using punch card machines, and bulky early NASA space suits are some of the eye-rolling passages for me. It definitely has not aged well, and the dialog is earnest like those 1950s sci-fi/horror movies that show up on late night tv.

The book was in great shape and arrived before the posted date. I read this book as a kid and loved it and bought it now for my son. I was so excited to find it!

"Outpost on Jupiter" was published in 1963 (my copy anyway) and it has aged fairly well. The basic story is about Bob and his dad who visit Ganymede (a moon of Jupiter) while they are on a spaceship. Events happen which force them to stay behind while the ship travels onward toward Earth. I am trying to avoid spoilers.

Interplanetary travel is pretty well discussed and the time to get from one planet to another is in weeks or months. Mars and some of the other moons have been colonized, but Outpost, on Ganymede is the most distant.

Positives: A good plot and nice climax. Good dialogue. Excellent "showing" and not "telling" about technology stuff and the human conditions. Interesting discussion about languages with ideas about how to speak to an alien species.

Negatives: Some limited sexism in gender roles. Women are nurses, homemakers, ect..,. Not really too bad for 1963. Computer punch cards are talked about, and that felt dated.

Overall a solid grade B+ work.

If you like Heinlein's juveniles you may very well like this book.

"Outpost of Jupiter" by Lester Del Rey
This interplanetary space adventure novel first published in 1963 has not aged very well. The story concerns a couple of teenagers residing on the moon Ganymede, combating a plague and making contact with beings from Jupiter. The last time this book was republished was in 1982.

Author Del Rel (1915-93) add credability to an otherwise absurd tale with his expertise in medical research procedures and plausible descriptions of time-consuming and dangerous space travel. His realistic images of the struggling space colony and the near impossible logistics of obtaining life-sustaining provisions also adds to the modest enjoyment of this book.

Adults may wish that Del Rey speculated in greater detail on the nuts and bolts of living in an isolated colony on one of Jupiter's moons. Alas, the juvenile market, for which this book was written, necessitated the insertion of several incredible challenges for our resourceful teenage boys "Bob" and "Red" to resolve.

Mr. Del Rey authored a number of interplantary space adventure for younger readers: "Battle on Mercury"; "Mysterious Planet"; "Rocket Jockey" and "Marooned on Mars". Interested readers looking for these types of stories may be better served by seeking out books in a similar vein by Isaac Asimov (1920-92) and Robert Heinlein (1907-88).
