Farside by Ben Bova | Spotlight

16243442This book sounds intriguing.  Not my usual read but I enjoyed the blurb:

Goodreads blurb:
Telescopes on Earth have detected an Earth-sized planet circling a star some thirty light-years away. Now the race is on to get pictures of that distant world that show whether or not the planet is truly like Earthand if it bears life. Farside observatory will have the largest optical telescope in the solar system and the most sensitive radio telescope, insulated from the interference of Earth’s radio chatter by a thousand kilometers of the moon’s solid body. But building Farside is a complex, dangerous task. Accidents happen, some of them fatal. What they ultimately find stuns everyone, and humanity will never be the same.
