Summary
"The discovery of an Earth-sized planet 30 light years from Earth sparks a race to develop a telescope to create a photographic record of the new world. The far side of the moon, with its "clear" view of space, seems an ideal location, but the project's planners must contend with rivalries from the existing moon colony of Selene. Sent from Earth to assist Dr. Ulrich, director of Angel Observatory, Dr. Trudy Yost immediately becomes involved in the web of politics, sabotage, and physical obstacles that mark life on Farside."--Library Journal

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
