‘It's “LA FIN DU MONDE!" declares Professeur Calys, as an enormous star hurtles towards the earth. But he is disappointed - the star brushes past, leaving only a vast meteorite which falls in the Arctic waters. However, there is no mistake about the Professeur’s discovery of a valuable new metal in the meteorite; it is worth a colossal fortune, and in a hazardous search in polar regions Tintin, Milou and Capitaine Haddock (Président of the L.M.A. - Ligue des Marins Antialcooliques) encounter some of their strangest adventures.’ - Tintinologist.
