February Book

At long last, here is the book we will kick off 2017 with:

jacket

For those who want a synopsis:

The author of Stiff and Bonk explores the irresistibly strange universe of space travel and life without gravity. As the author discovers, 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 capsule (cadaver filling in for astronaut), she takes us on a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space and space on Earth”

I will post when the library receives copies of the book.
