How does it believe to orbit the earth ten occasions swifter than a rushing bullet?
What’s it prefer to devour, sleep and visit the bathroom in space?
And the place to subsequent – the Moon, Mars or beyond?
Ask an Astronaut is Tim’s own advisor to lifestyles in house, in keeping with his old Principia venture, and the hundreds of thousands of questions he has been requested considering the fact that his go back to Earth.
Accessible, in-depth, and written along with his attribute heat, Tim stocks his options on each point of his undertaking. From education to release, from his ancient spacewalk to re-entry, he unearths for readers of every age the state-of-the-art technological know-how in the back of his ground-breaking experiments, and the wonders of daily lifestyles on board the overseas house Station.
The public have been invited to post questions utilizing the hashtag #askanastronaut, and a variety are replied by means of Tim within the e-book, so that it will be observed with illustrations, diagrams and never-before-seen photos.
