Tindle, Andrew and Kelley, Simon (2012). Moon Rocks: An Introduction to the Geology of the Moon. Open University.



Moon Rocks is the story of the Moon through the eyes of a geologist. The authors worked with thin sections of Moon rocks provided by NASA, and use interactive panoramas, videos, and many many images to tell the story of the Moon. The interactive virtual microscopes are a new feature that allows the reader to easily explore rocks from the Apollo missions up close. Additionally, chapter 4 makes a detailed comparison between a volcanic rock on the Moon and a volcanic rock on Earth. The book also contains original NASA scientific reports, quizzes to test your knowledge and a glossary of terms. At the end of the experience the user will have a good insight into how scientists study Moon rocks.
