Illustrated by Philippe Biard
Through captivating illustrations and diagrams, we observe the craters on the Moon, how the Moon orbits around the Earth and its relative size compared to the Earth and the Sun. We find out about the different phases of the Moon, and about lunar and solar eclipses. We follow early attempts to reach the Moon as well as the first landing on the Moon and see what the astronauts took back with them. We also learn about the satellites of other planets and plans to build a space station on the Moon.
