Marking the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 and the first moonwalk, the latest addition to the long-running Eyewitness series takes the reader on a lunar voyage to Earth's nearest neighbour. This book explores the Moon from its place in myth and legend to the 20th Century space race and beyond. It shows how astronomers and astronauts have scrutinized the moon's craters and seas, analyzed its structure, and checked its potential as a base for future exploration of outer space.
