About this title

Synopsis:

Sally Ride, the first America woman to journey into space, gives young readers an unprecedented look at life among the stars and aboard NASA shuttles in To Space and Back, an ALA Notable Children’s Book.

Much has been written about the vast scientific importance of space exploration, but very little about the human side of being a member of an astronaut crew. Sally Ride first flew into space on the shuttle Challenger on June 18, 1983. In this book, with the help of journalist Susan Okie, Sally shares her personal experience of traveling into space. From discussing the experience of living and working in the weightlessness of space to explaining how astronauts train and adapt to their new environment, she answers the most frequently asked questions about her journey through space.
