    Dark side of the moon The moon is a familiar sight – at least, the face permanently turned towards Earth is. In 1959, the Soviet Luna-3 probe gave us a new perspective when it sent back this grainy picture of the lunar far side. It looks different from the near side as the crust here is harder and cooler. Subsequent missions have discovered an abundance of water located at the moon's poles. (Image: National Space Science Data Center (NSSDC) Photo Gallery)
