Bernd Brunner takes us on a trip to the moon

The moon has long held a special significance for the people of Earth and throughout our cultural history the ‘night-sun’ has been represented in a multitude of forms. However, whatever shape it takes the Moon’s power over the human imagination has never diminished. In this video trailer to his book, Bernd Brunner explains why ‘you don’t have to travel to the moon in order to discover it’.
