Summary
Everyone's looking for the next Earth, and when a promising candidate is detected circling a star some 30 light years away, everyone wants to be the first to see it in detail. As a team of astronomers works to build the lunar-based Farside Observatory with its giant optical telescope, they clash with the inhabitants of the Moon colony of Selene. Meanwhile, a rival group of scientists backed by the International Astronautical Authority creates a high-powered telescope of their own in deep space. Think astronomy is nothing but a fancy word for star-gazing? This novel, with its layered intrigue, high-tech sabotage, and rogue nanotechnology, is sure to change your mind. -- Description by Gillian Speace
