Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Fun to browse… Readers will enjoy satisfying their curiosity about life in space through this accessible title.”—VOYA  

VOYA
How does a spacecraft get heated? Do things taste and smell the same in space? The answers to these and many other questions about life in space can be found in this fun and educational resource. A revised edition, it contains inquiries addressed to the author, a former astronaut, about the international space station and other recent space program developments. Beginning with personal queries for the author such as "How did you shave?" the title suddenly immerses the reader in general and technical space questions, such as "What causes oxygen erosion on the Shuttle?" Fun to browse, some organizational changes would make the book easier to navigate. No table of contents is provided and the appendix listing is obscurely hidden and without page numbers. Contact information and additional reference lists with URLs would be well served to have "freshness dates." Nevertheless the index is well organized, with each topic pointing to a specific question number. Some questions are crossreferenced when appropriate. Readers will enjoy satisfying their curiosity about life in space through this accessible title. Index. Illus. Photos. Further Reading. Appendix. VOYA CODES: 2Q 2P M J S (Better editing or work by the author might have warranted a 3Q; For the YA with a special interest in the subject; Middle School, defined as grades 6 to 8; Junior High, defined as grades 7 to 9; Senior High, defined as grades 10 to 12). 1999, Tor, Ages 12 to 18, 192p, $11.95 Trade pb.

    This book is awesome

    This book was absolutely awesome. I've bought three copies already to give to my kids' teachers. They love it. Very practical answers to all of those questions that you'd like to ask an astronaut.
