The Dark Side of the Moon-Seriously

While we are celebrating the fortieth anniversary of the release of Pink Floyd‘s  historic Dark Side of the Moon album, it is important to note that only a handful of Apollo astronauts had ever directly actually seen the dark (far) side of the Moon until very recently. Almost as important is the fact that, as you will see below in this spectacular NASA video from one of two lunar satellites orbiting it (named “Ebb” & “Flo” !), the far side is  dark no more frequently than the side which always faces Earth. A reminder that Roger Waters, David Gilmour, and Nick Mason are here In the Studio to map the musical lunar landscape beginning Monday.
