Everyone wonders what it's really like in space, but very few of us have ever had the chance to experience it firsthand. This captivating illustrated collection brings together stories from dozens of international astronauts—men and women who've actually been there—who have returned with accounts of the sometimes weird, often funny, and awe-inspiring sensations and realities of being in space. With playful artwork accompanying each, here are the real stories behind backwards dreams, "moon face," the tricks of sleeping in zero gravity and aiming your sneeze during a spacewalk, the importance of packing hot sauce, and dozens of other cosmic quirks and amazements that come with travel in and beyond low Earth orbit.

About the Author:

Ariel Waldman is the global instigator of Science Hack Day, a fellow at the Institute for the Future, a National Academy of Sciences committee member, a White House Champion of Change for Citizen Science, and the founder of Spacehack.org, a directory of ways to participate in space exploration. She lives in San Francisco.

Review:

"Houston, we have a winner." - Oprah Magazine

"[A] captivating illustrated collection." - Smithsonian Magazine

"...a delightful mini-coffee table book about all the awkward and beautiful moments you can have in space, based on dozens of interviews with people who have actually been there. If you're looking for a fun read about life outside the gravity well, check out What's It Like In Space?"
- Ars Technica

"This charmingly illustrated book is much meatier than its diminutive size would suggest. These snippets are so clear, so beautifully curated, that they really do leave you with a sense of what it must be like to float miles above Earth." – Entertainment Weekly
