Curious what it’s like to travel at more than 850 mph riding in a supersonic T-38 twin turbojet engine airplane? Through candid and often humorous accounts, author and U.S. astronaut Clayton C. Anderson, who lived for 167 days aboard the International Space Station, writes about what it’s really like in space. For explorers and memoir enthusiasts, make room on your shelf for this one-of-a-kind copy of The Ordinary Spaceman, hand-signed by the author.
Laden with authentic accounts, Clayton shares the full spectrum of his experiences: his journey starting in a small town in Nebraska, his discouraging 15 NASA applications, his time on the space station, his emotions while escorting the family of the ill-fated Columbia crew. With the perfect balance of lightheartedness and solemnity, The Ordinary Spaceman is everything but ordinary. It is a candid story about perseverance, humility, and the pursuit of an extraordinary goal, a deeply personal account that will resonate in all areas of life and will leave readers moved and inspired.
