The author of Stiff and Bonk explores the irresistibly strange universe of space travel and life without gravity. 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. How much can a person give up? How much weirdness can they take? What happens to you when you can't walk for a year? have sex? smell flowers? What happens if you vomit in your helmet during a space walk? Is it possible for the human body to survive a bailout at 17,000 miles per hour? To answer these questions, space agencies set up all manner of quizzical and startlingly bizarre space simulations. 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.… (mere)

    A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts af Andrew Chaikin (Othemts)

    Kold marv af Tom Wolfe (Othemts, nessreader)
    nessreader: The shift in corporate mentality in NASA between the testosterone drenched fighter pilots of Wolfe's era and the team orientated and PR-paranoid present is instructive. The terrifying discipline required seems equal; in any case, interesting to compare.

    What's It Like in Space?: Stories from Astronauts Who've Been There af Ariel Waldman (bragan)
    bragan: Packing for Mars is definitely the book to read if you're interested in the odd quirks of life in space (at least if you're OK with reading about bodily functions), and What's It Like In Space? makes for a fun little companion volume to it.

    Riding Rockets: The Outrageous Tales of a Space Shuttle Astronaut af Mike Mullane (itbgc)
  5. 10
    The Martian af Andy Weir (sboyte)
    sboyte: One is fiction and one is nonfiction, but the subject matter is similar and I think both will appeal to anyone who enjoys science with a dash of humor.

Lots of great details about space and Mars. Definitely worthwhile. Mary Roach's books are consistently entertaining and educational. ( )

I love Mary's writing style and wit. If it were for me, she would write a book about every subject in science and society. ( )
  ladyars | Dec 31, 2020 |
I read this as research for my science fiction writing. Super helpful- it focused on what space is *like*, how people feel, what they eat, even how they poop.

Small quibble though: the title is deceptive. It's not really about going to Mars. There's a sentence here and there about Mars, but the bulk of the book is about places we've already been: the moon, the ISS, etc. Which is fine, but I really did want details about how we're going to get to Mars. ( )

Ridiculously detailed, but in the end, that is what made it good. Those details are the essence of space travel. ( )
  bederson | Dec 17, 2020 |
Like all Mary Roach works, funny and insightful. It's not much more than a collection of amusing and informative anecdotes, but it doesn't pretend to be anything world-changing. ( )

If you stumbled onto Building 993 at Ellington Field airport, you would have to stop and wonder about the things inside. The sign on the front is as evocative and preposterous as the engraved brass one that says Ministry of Silly Walks in the Monty Python sketch of the same name. This sign says REDUCED GRAVITY OFFICE. I know what is in there, but even so, I have to stand for a moment and indulge my imagination, through which coffeepots are floating and secretaries drift here and there like paper airplanes. Or better still, an organization devoted to the taking of absolutely nothing seriously.
