Content:

A young boy argues his way to a space station after having won a television quiz-show about rockets. His price was a trip to "anywhere in the world". He argued that the space station was, by some definition in a certain radius that still belonged to the planet
.

A whole bunch of adventures the young man has to experience, with some science stuck in the gaps to educate the reader.

It really is a novel for kids aged 14 to 17 (back in the day) that could well have happened on sea, in the desert, in the arctic regions or anywhere else sufficiently remote and attractive.

Nice read, though. Very innocent.
