Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void

Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void - Mary Roach 3.5 star review.Really interesting, but also rather dry which is probably why it took me so long to read. Well worth the effort though, as it's filled with anecdotes and tidbits about space travel that I had no clue about!Like that you can't actually feel you have to pee before it's almost too late, because that feeling is gravity causing the pee to weigh down.Or how two astronauts got so desperate for fresh food that they ate the onion bulbs they had brought along to observe growth in space.And about a hundred others that I either can't remember detailed enough, or that are too gross to mention here... funnily enough, a lot of the anecdotes conserned bodily functions, but I guess that's not too weird, considering.But if you're a bit of a space geek like myself, you'll want to read this!
