Packing for Mars

Did you know that in Japan, psychologists evaluate astronaut candidates by, among other things, their ability to fold origami cranes quickly under stress? This is one of the milder details of spaceflight in Roach's new book. With her unflinching eye for repellent details, Roach launches into the thick of space travel's grossest engineering challenges: disposing of human waste, controlling body odor without washing, and containing nausea — or else surviving a spacewalk with a helmet full of perilously acidic vomit.
"...an often hilarious, sometimes queasy-making catalog of the strange stuff devised to permit people to survive in an environment for which their bodies are stupendously unsuited." — New York Times Book Review
