Space is a world devoid of the things we need to live and thrive: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh produce, privacy, beer. Space exploration is in some ways an exploration of what it means to be human. Here, Mary Roach discovers that it's possible to preview space without ever leaving Earth. From the space shuttle training toilet to a crash test of NASA's new space capusle (cadaver filling in for astronaut), Roach takes readers on a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space and space on Earth. 288p.
