About this title

Synopsis:

Sir Patrick Moore is the undisputed expert on the stars and planets. His first "Guide to the Moon" was published more than fifty years ago, and reprinted many times; amid all the excitement of inter-planetary exploration and the rush to journey into space, Sir Patrick has never lost his fascination with our nearest heavenly body. This book explores his intimate knowledge of the Moon's surface structure, its origins, its place in the general scheme of the Universe and its close relationship with Earth. What was once remote and mysterious is now almost conquered territory, our knowledge extended immeasurably by the Apollo missions and more recently lunar probes. Yet the questions remain. Is there evidence to show there was once life on the Moon? Is there life there now? What does the Moon tell us about the beginning of life, or the end of life even, on Earth? In his new book, Sir Patrick reviews our present knowledge of the Moon in the lucid and lively manner he has made all his own.

About the Author:

Sir Patrick Moore CBE FRS, Britain's best known astronomer, has over 50 years attracted and held a vast audience through his books and television appearances. He has presented every edition of The Sky at Night since it was first broadcast in April 1957, a world record for television, and to universal acclaim won a Lifetime Achievement Award for his services to television at the 2001 BAFTA Awards, presented to him by the astronaut Buzz Aldrin. He is a Fellow and Past President of the Royal Astronomical Society, was awarded the CBE in 1988 and his knighthood in 2000. An enthusiastic communicator, he has done more to popularise the study of astronomy than any other writer of his or subsequent generations.
