Moon: A Biography
David Whitehouse (au)
The extraordinary biography of our nearest celestial neighbor. Explains how the moon was created (& what moon rocks tell us of its earth-shattering origins), & how its existence may have been a crucial factor in mankind being here at all. Discusses how man has related to it, worshipped it & blamed it for his own ‘lunacy’ . Tells how the first person to look at the moon through a telescope was not Galileo, as is commonly believed, but an Englishman who knew Shakespeare & had a part in the Gunpowder Plot. Charts the first moon race to map the moon, which is one of the most dramatic stories in science. Reaches back into prehistory, retelling myths & legends & looking forward to the future, to draw the the moon’s story together in this brilliant book. Illustrations.
