About this book

The Moon has always been something of an enigma, carrying with it an aura of mystery, all of which the author will explain as well as dispel with fun and fascinating facts culled from both basic science and the latest discoveries. Full of spectacular images, this book explains how the Moon affects the earth physically, as well as how it has changed the course of humanity: our beliefs, our culture, our oceans and our science. In total, the book will cover the story of the Moon from its fiery and violent birth 4 billion years ago to the near future, when humans will stand on its dusty surface once again.
