Customer Reviews of Astronaut Handbook


Rated 4 out of 5 by from Terrific Introductory Book This book outlines different types of astronauts, and in very simple terms, explains what it takes to become one - lots and lots of studying and teamwork. Liked the detailed diagram of an astronaut's bathroom. Highly recommend this.
