* SequelHook: The book leaves open the possibility that the Vanished People may reappear (did they die off, fly off into space or go into cryogenic suspension somewhere?), but no third book was produced. (Not by the original authors, at any rate. There is an unauthorized "sequel" which is, by most accounts, pretty bad.)

Added DiffLines:

* ArtisticLicense:Physics: The novel relates how during the first pass of Bronson Alpha and Bronson Beta, Bronson Alpha passed closed enough to collide with and destroy the moon. Several times during book, Bronson Alpha was clearly stated to be a gas giant as large as Jupiter. In reality, a gas giant that size passing close enough to earth to destroy the moon would have torn the earth to shreds with its gravity alone, no collision would have been needed.
