The best-selling author of Stiff and Bonk explores the irresistibly strange universe of space travel and life without gravity. From the Space Shuttle training toilet to a crash test of NASA's new space capsule, Mary Roach takes us on the surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space and space on Earth.
Mary Roach is the author of five best-selling works of nonfiction, including Grunt , Stiff , and, most recently, Fuzz . Her writing has appeared in National Geographic and the New York Times Magazine , among other publications. She lives in Oakland, California.
A truly funny look at the less majestic aspects of the space program.... Roach s writing is supremely accessible, but there s never a moment when you aren t aware of how much research she s done into unexplored reaches of space travel.
