DISCUSSION

The premise of the movie SPACE:1999 is the explosion of an atomic waste stockpile on the farside of the Moon. So powerful is the explosion that Earth's satellite becomes a "world in space" on an unknown destination with its 311 inhabitants of Moonbase Alpha. The chance that any person could survive such a devastating blast is as remote as the likelihood that any of Jules Verne's passengers lived through blast off of his COLUMBIAD cannon.
