It is a fact of history that when Neil Armstrong set Apollo 11 down on the moon he was running dangerously low on fuel. This Pushcart Prize-nominated story recounts an alternate history in which the lunar module crashed and man's journey to the moon ended not in triumph--but tragedy. A decade later, two astronauts finally return to the moon.
And what they'll find is something no one expects.
