The moon.

The space shot from Florida this week didn't even get into orbit. But it did partially retrace the steps of the first astronauts to visit the moon, and took place on the 52nd anniversary of the first moonwalk.

That confluence of events AND the full moon (July 23-24) convinced us to get a refresher course in the big rock in the sky.

Oliver Morton provides an overview in time and space in The Moon: A History for the Future. We revisit our interview from 2019 in this hour.
