The Moon is undoubtedly the nearest celestial body to Earth, and in other words it is the only neighbor that is ready to accept the uninvited guests from our Planet. It is also considered as the Earth’s only satellite. The Moon has since ancient times attracted the attention of the Earth’s habitants, and it has been the subject of many explorations and research regarding its formation and characteristics, and even many poetic minds have fancied about it and likened it to the eyebrows or face of the beloved. Curious human being managed to step on it about thirty-one years ago. This conquest put an end to all false claims and speculations about the Moon. When the veil was done away with and the facts were revealed, it become clear that the Moon, despite its beauty, is but a dead planet, because no sign of life was found on it. There was indeed nothing but an eternal deadly silence, earlier knowledge of which could have saved people those great amounts of praise and speculations.
