Up Close With The Earth's Constant Companion


This month marks the 50th anniversary of the first human moon landing. Science writer Oliver Morton (who actually has an asteroid named for him) has written an intimate portrait of our moon, exploring humanity's relationship with our nearest neighbor in the solar system. 

His book is called The Moon: A History for the Future.  The author joins us to talk about our natural satellite.  We may never look up to the sky with the same eyes again.
