[apollo 11 and Beyond... the Ultimate Guide to Our Nearest Neighbour]Book - 2009
The Moon is the only natural satellite of Earth. It is the second brightest object in the sky. Since prehistoric times, the Moon has been an object of fascination, awe and even worship for many peoples. It has always been a romantic icon; even after man had walked on the moon it retained its romantic appeal. This book looks at the Moon from many angles; as an object of worship; and as one of the first objects for scientific research in the solar system.
