What’s It Like in Space?, A New Book Featuring Stories by Astronauts About Life Away From Earth

What's It Like in Space?

What’s It Like in Space? is a new book by Ariel Waldman that collects stories from astronauts about what life is like away from Earth. The book pairs those stories with playful artwork to help readers visualize the ideas being discussed like backwards dreams, fart propulsion, and the difficulties of falling asleep while floating.

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.
