Imagine living on the moon. What would you eat? Where and how would you make your home? Written by a former NASA mission controller with firsthand knowledge of the space program, this intriguing book combines a vivid description of humankind’s race to the moon with a detailed vision of the moon as our next frontier. Dyson packs lots of moon science into this futuristic vision, presenting kids with key facts in many fields—from geology to engineering to astronautics. Actual images of the moon from NASA’s extensive files are paired throughout with imaginative yet accurate artistic renditions of how a moon colony might look.
