About this book

Get the inside story on outer space from three-time shuttle astronaut R. Mike Mullane.

"An excellent reference. This book has to be on the shelf of every space buff."
– James Lovell, Commander, Apollo 13.

"A fascinating collection of honest, factual, from-the-heart answers to the most often asked questions about spaceflight and spacefliers. Required reading for all who aspire to travel in space."
– Kathy Thornton, 4-mission Shuttle Astronaut, World Record Holder for Spacewalks by a Woman.

"A highly informative inside view of what astronauts really experience in space."
