There is No Dark Side

dscovrepicmoontransitfullAccording to NASA, this shot of the far side of the Moon was captured by the Deep Space Climate Observer Satellite as it orbited a million miles above Earth. The “dark side” of the Moon is only figuratively “dark”.

I also feel like the realization that the “dark side” of the Moon has become progressively less mysterious since humanity’s first imaging of it in 1959 kind of ruins the conceit of isolation in Moon for me.
