|Guthrie: I recently re-read "A fall of moondust"|
Was that the one about the ship that sailed on the lunar dust and sank? I remember that from my childhood - first class SF! I also think it may have been instrumental in convincing creationists that the moon should be covered with hundreds of feet of dust.
Doesn't seem likely - Clarke makes it clear that this was a very specific location on the Moon where a lot of dust had collected. The ship that sailed on the dust was a special tourist attraction for just that reason.
(Always wanted to see a movie made from that book!)
