Within your grasp A review of the book The Everyday Space Traveler “Many a trip continues long after movement in time and space have ceased” - John Steinbeck From staying in caves surrounded by dim lit fireflies to staying in penthouses surrounded by light emitting diodes, if there is one thing that has remained constant, it is our curiosity and our natural tendency to explore the unexplored. We're natural wanderers, being the only species that you can find in all corners of the world and it is this curiosity that will propel us to continue with further exploration of space. Author Jason Klassi’s book ‘The Everyday Space Traveler’ is the perfect travelogue cum guide that you could take with you on your first space trip, but wait, here’s what makes it doubly good, it serves just as well as a book you could immerse yourself in, providing great insights into the human way of life here on earth. Filled with colourful photographs and artwork, this book will also act as your own private spaceship that will take you on a once in a lifetime journey into space and back without you even having to leave the confines and comfort of your sofa. The author through this book takes us on a tour through the solar system, starting off from our lives here on earth to the wonders in space. The Everyday Space Traveler reminds and illuminates our minds to the wonders and forces of nature that the cosmos is capable of. The book also talks about what might be in store for us if we fail to understand our world better and our role in it. This is in many ways a book as much about getting a grasp of space travel as it is about understanding and utilising our time here better. This book is bound to inspire children and young adults to turn to science and understand science's role as a metaphorical candle to remove the darkness surrounding our lives. The author suggests that one should make the inner space strong before venturing out into outer space. By withdrawing from everyday life, you must prepare yourselves to enter a new one and then when you return from there to your everyday life, you must utilize your new knowledge and new perspective to bring about a positive change back here. Apart from this, the book also talks about the challenges of living in outer space. There are segments on terraforming Mars and establishing space colonies that will further propel space exploration. Jason Klassi’s writing immerses you into the wonders of awe that space travel promises to everyone and the book itself is set in an easy to read and understand layout and language. Jason Klassi through this wonderful book instils in us the knowledge of recognition of the unimaginable vastness of space and the uniqueness of the not so unique planet Earth that we call our home. Perhaps the most important message you could take away from this book is not to take for granted our lives and our home on this beautiful planet Earth. He inspires you to believe and hope in the greatness that we humans are capable of as we move forward into the future. A must read for any space enthusiast.
