Full description for Packing for Mars
Space is devoid of the stuff humans need to live: air, gravity, hot showers, fresh veg, privacy, beer. How much can a person give up? What happens when you can't walk? Is sex any fun? What's it like being with a few people for months at a time? From the space shuttle training toilet to a 17,000 mile-per-hour crash test of NASA's space capsule, Mary Roach takes us on a surreally entertaining trip into the science of life in space.
