Before spacecrafts left orbit and swung around the moon, nobody knew lay on the other side. For it is a peculiar fact that Earth-bound men can only see the one side of the moon. This article dives deeps into man's knowledge of the moon and how we can harvest space exploration for our benefit.

In recent year's, it has been Western science that has leD the way. Keplar's Second Law defines the methematical area swept over the radius vector. It was also Hansen's theory that describes the shape of the moon. This innovative thinking proposed the possibility that an atmosphere and maybe even life could exist on the far side of the moon.
