The book traces the story of our relationship with our nearest neighbor. Ancient mythology clothed the Moon in mystery; mathematics and philosophy showed us that it was a satellite in a system subject to natural laws; telescopes revealed its face in detail; and the Space Race and the Apollo program made the ancient dream of reaching the Moon a reality. Gene Cernan (Commander Apollo 17 & last man to walk on the Moon) had an input into the contents of this book.
