Cancelled - David Warmflash

Astrobiologist David Warmflash’s illustrated text begins 4.5 billion years ago with the Moon’s formation, and presents 100 milestones in the Moon’s development and exploration. Lunar calendars, sixth century predictions of solar eclipses, the twentieth century space race and the emergence of private space companies are all part of the story, well told in his book, Moon: An Illustrated History: From Ancient Myths to the Colonies of Tomorrow (Sterling).

"Based on the latest scientific discoveries, and filled with fascinating detail, Moon: An Illustrated History tells the story of the Earth's closest companion. In clear language and a keen ear for revealing anecdotes, David Warmflash moves seamlessly from geological time to historical time, from the Moon's formation 4.5 billion years ago to the Apollo landings and on to the challenge of future exploration. Anything you wanted to know about the Moon in science, myth, and history can be found in this beautiful, richly illustrated book." -- Amir Alexander, author of Infinitesimal: How a Dangerous Mathematical Theory Shaped the Modern World.
