Imagine working in a laboratory that's 200 miles above Earth. You perform experiments on microbes, radiation, new types of metals, and even your own body. You travel to work on a spacecraft, work alongside robots, and drink your own recycled urine! It's all in a day's work for an astronaut aboard the International Space Station. Readers will discover how work in science and engineering is carried out every day by astronauts on the ISS. Told in a lively narrative style, this book includes firsthand accounts of astronauts' lives, entertaining anecdotes, cool facts, and fascinating behind-the-scenes images. Readers will also get the chance to try their hand at space science projects.
