On the Cover: No man is an island, says the poet, but we travel alone on a watery globe, a luminous pearl suspended in the blackness. From the perspective of the returning Apollo 16 astronauts, planet Earth is a delicate, beckoning oasis of overwhelming beauty in an inhospitable void. The vast Pacific Ocean nearly fills the visible hemisphere. The southwestern United States appears on the right. Photo courtesy of NASA.
