Description

Get an inside look at the intense mental and physical preparation and trials astronauts endure in one of the most difficult, yet revered, careers on Earth! This job poses a lot of mystifying questions for those of us who aren’t astronauts, however. What does it take to train to become an astronaut? Are there different kinds of astronauts, and what do they do in space? What does it feel like to launch into outer space?

The answers to all these questions - and then some! - are formatted as an operations manual in an instructional manner so convincing you might just think you’re part of the NASA team, yet digestible enough for any layperson to understand.

Author Dr. Ken MacTaggert is co-editor of the Apollo 11 Flight Journal, NASA’s official record of the mission, and has written about space-related topics for numerous national publications. This expertise and inside knowledge paired with countless photographs, diagrams, illustrations and more result in an outstandingly thorough guide.

Space enthusiasts, aspiring astronauts, and anyone who loves to learn will appreciate this Haynes owners’ workshop manual that describes the astounding human experience of space travel.
