What about the other side of the Moon?


Question:

All the manned landings on the moon took place on the side of the moon facing the Earth. Why not on the other side?


Answer:

All the landings were on the side of the Moon facing the Earth because the astronauts had to communicate with the Earth by radio. The radio waves cannot travel through the Moon to reach the Earth.
