Packing for Mars MARY ROACH will discuss
Packing for Mars
Tuesday, August 24th at 7 PM

Don't miss popular science writer and bestselling author Mary Roach as she entertainingly explores questions about life in outer space. Rather than delve into the thrills and agonies of space travel, she questions "the stuff in between—the small comedies and everyday victories." Like bowel movements in zero gravity, for example. She asks: what happens when you can't walk for a year? Have sex? Smell flowers? What 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 a host of quizzical and startlingly bizarre space simulations, proving that it's possible to preview space without ever leaving Earth.

"A delightful, illuminating grab bag of space-flight curiosities." — Kirkus Reviews

Hunger Games was featured as one of our Holiday Gift Selections two years ago.
