This fun little book is intriguing and inspiring, a neat resource for a science fiction writer or the just plain curious." - Ryan.

With playful artwork accompanying each, here are the real stories behind backward dreams, "moon face," the tricks of sleeping in zero gravity and aiming your sneeze during a spacewalk, the importance of packing hot sauce, and dozens of other cosmic quirks and amazements that come with travel in and beyond low Earth orbit.
