In Space Station Science, former NASA mission controller Marianne Dyson explains all the systems needed to keep the International Space Station up and running. She shows how the simplest tasks of daily life are changed in free fall and details the types of experiments scientists can do in space and nowhere else.

Dyson tells how we get to and from space and gives us a glimpse into the future of space stations. Complete with activities that simulate life in space and illustrated with full-color photos and drawings, this insider's guide will show you what it's like to live in a space station and how what we learn up there could forever change our lives down here. Illustrations completed by Dave Klug with a foreword provided by Buzz Aldrin.
