      I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book I wasn t in a good mood to read it and it s been years since I was extremely intrigued by space travel, but this is a terrific non fiction book about the subject When I was young, I did enjoy the freeze dried blocks of Neapolitan ice cream, designed for space travel, and a bar of that makes its appearance in this book I would also like to ride the vomit comet, also mentioned here, but only after heavily medicating with ginger or other travel sickne [...]
