Then again, you can't really have a "side" of a spherical object can you!

Well, maybe inside and outside; though, as Morin demonstrated, even that's not strictly true for a hollow sphere; but I digress.

I guess we might call it the 'Dark Hemisphere'; but with 'dark' being so controversial, perhaps not.

The 'Far Hemisphere' suffers from the same problem as 'Next City'; just a teansy weansy bit short-sighted relatively (NOTE: not relativistically) speaking.

Of course, the 'Occulted Hemisphere' suffers the same problem, even if it wouldn't be condemn by great swaths of religious leaders.

How about the 'Lunar Hemisphere We Don't Normally See'? (Will the use of 'Normal' be controversial in some circles I wonder?)

Plus, good luck getting Pink Floyd to retroactively modify their lyrics to incorporate that.


With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority". I knew I was on the right track :)
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
