The far side of the Moon is a dark and quiet spot which makes it the ideal location to pick up faint, very low-frequency radio waves.

Scientists are gearing up to use telescopes on the dark side of the Moon that could help detect signs of alien life if it is really out there. Astronomers have long fantasized about locating observatories on the lunar surface, but the idea has come back into the spotlight as humans gear up for another Moon mission. Different space organisations, including NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the National Astronomical Observatory of China, plan to instal radio telescopes.
