Summary
"For centuries, mankind has gazed up at the Moon in awe and wonder. It has been a source of both aspiration and inspiration to astronomers, poets, mathematicians and artists alike. But how much do we know about our closest neighbour? In this book, you'll discover the history of man's relationship with the Moon - the science, the myths, the facts and the fiction - and how it affects our everyday lives and the world around us." --Publisher description
