Building the Farside observatory is a complex, often dangerous task. On the airless surface of the Moon, under constant bombardment of hard radiation and infalling micrometeoroids, builders must work in cumbersome spacesuits and use robotic machines as much as possible. Breakdowns --- mechanical and emotional --- are commonplace. Accidents happen, some of them fatal. What they find stuns everyone, and the human race will never be the same.
