Fred Hoyle's scientific pedigree is up front in this vintage novel, co-written with son Geoffrey. The story is based on a classic SF premise--a star, with its own planetary system, is heading towards our own. It passes close enough for us to mount an expedition to one of the planets of the visiting star--an earth-like world with detectable signs of plant life. The planet turns out to be inhabited by vastly superior telepathic beings who hide themselves from the visitors. One of them takes possession of the mind of an astronaut, returning to earth to spread a dramatic and unwanted telepathic warning against the nuclear arms race, before returning on a hijacked spacecraft

Rockets in Ursa Major; a novel by Fred Hoyle( Book )

16 editions published between 1969 and 2015 in English and Italian and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The British spaceship DSP 15 returns from the stars of the Ursa Major stream, thirty years late, crewless and carrying its captain's last message: ""If this ship returns to Earth, then mankind is in deadly peril,"" specifically an alien invasion, as Dr. Warboys discovers with his new radar transmitter. Earth is caught in a galactic guerrilla war between the Yelas' and the friendly fleet of Belegeuse, whose species is also humanoid. It's too late to explain the mixup to the Yelas so humanoids ally in a sun-burst bomb retaliation. This is accelerated propulsion again, as in the Hoyles' first collaboration Fifth Planet (1967), fueled with more scientific theory, not a little satire and first rate fantasy."--Kirkus Review
