A chronological history of the Moon's formation and exploration, published to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the historic Apollo 11 landing.
"Through the course of human history, the sight of the Moon has captivated humanity's wildest imaginations, while its nightly presence has been a centerpiece of mythic and scientific hypotheses. Dr. David Warmflash has beautifully chronicled our fascination with--and discoveries from--our nearest neighbor in Moon: An Illustrated History. This fine book should be considered required reading for armchair lunar explorers, young and old." --Scott Parazynski, MD, NASA Space Shuttle astronaut (STS-66, 86, 95, 100, 120) and author of The Sky Below
