We explain over 20 of the world's creepiest curiosities, including: why we have nightmares, whether another person is wearing your face, and is your phones eavesdropping on you?

We're going Back to the Moon in issue 145, as we explore the technology and training behind the 2024 mission that's NASA's most ambitious since Apollo. Also: how animals see in the dark, underwater city of the pharaohs, hypernova power, meet the inventor of GPS, and why is fracking so bad?

In this issue of How It Works magazine, we're looking ahead to the hottest developments in science and technology, including: the launch of NASA's JWST - the deepest-looking space telescope ever, a man-made meteor shower, robots at the Summer Olympics, and a rare emergence of cicadas, millions-strong as Brood X hatches.
