Wonderful! A warm, humorous, personal account of what it's like to go into space and to come home. Touching on everything from the science of zero gravity and potential Mars exploration to the realities of trying to convince politicians to fund NASA, Terry Virts brings his deep understanding of life in space to the layperson. In the tradition of Chris Hadfield's "An Astronaut's Guide to Life on Earth," How to Astronaut is a wide-ranging, "down-to-earth" window into the life of an astronaut. I loved it. I would read it again. Recommended for armchair travelers, space nuts, and dreamers.
