About this title:

Synopsis: [Library Edition Audiobook CD in vinyl case.]

[Read by Stefan Rudnicki]

Six-time Hugo-Award winner Ben Bova presents Farside.

Farside, the side of the moon that never faces Earth, is the ideal location for an astronomical observatory. It is also the setting for a tangled web of politics, personal ambition, love, jealousy, and murder.

Telescopes on Earth have detected an Earth-sized planet circling a star some thirty light-years away. Now the race is on to get pictures of that distant world, photographs and spectra that show whether or not the planet is truly like Earth -- and if it bears life. Farside observatory will have the largest optical telescope in the solar system as well as a vast array of radio antennas, the most sensitive radio telescope possible, insulated from the interference of Earth's radio chatter by a thousand kilometers of the moon's solid body.

Building Farside is a complex, often dangerous task. On the airless surface of the moon, under constant bombardment by hard radiation and infalling micrometeoroids, builders must work in cumbersome spacesuits and use robotic machines as much as possible. Breakdowns -- mechanical and emotional -- are commonplace. Accidents happen, some of them fatal. But what they ultimately find will stun everyone, and the human race will never be the same.

About the Author: BEN BOVA, six-time winner of science fiction's Hugo Award, is the author of over 120 hundred futuristic novels and nonfiction books. A former editor of Analog and former fiction editor of Omni, he is also president emeritus of the National Space Society and a past president of the Science Fiction Writers of America. He received the Lifetime Achievement Award of the Arthur C. Clarke Foundation in 2005, and his novel Titan won the John W. Campbell Memorial Award for the best science fiction novel of 2006.
