The solar system is awash with moons - miniature worlds in their own right. And yet we are unique amongst the inner planets in having a giant companion world. Why Earth should have such a moon is one of the deepest mysteries of the Solar System. Moon tells the story of how the Earth's satellite became the object of desire of the two Cold War superpowers, and how scientists jumped on the political bandwagon to solve the riddle of the century.
