Wayne W. Axing fell in love with the Moon during his career with NASA. After spending twenty years as an astronomer, Wayne now works as a freelance writer for a range of publications. His articles have been featured in magazines like Popular Moons, Cosmoonpolitan, The Scientific Manatee, The Atlantic Moonthly and SPACE!!!!!!
