Product description

Review

‘Straight-talking, completely absorbing’ (Esquire)

'Mike Massimino writes about space with an astronaut's eye and an engineer's precision. You'll be impressed with his journey and his perspective on where a well-developed space programme can take us in the future.' (Senator John Glenn)

'Massimino's incredible journeys, filled with grit, courage, suspense and thrills, are told with such candor and delight, that for a brief moment I felt I’d finally made it to space too. Read this book and be inspired to reach for the impossible.' (Brian Greene)

'Every generation of astronauts needs a storyteller - a person with wit, humour and passion who has lived our collective dreams of space exploration and returned to tell us all about it. Mike Massimino is that person. He's that astronaut. And this is his story.' (Neil deGrasse Tyson)

'Inspired by moonwalkers, Mike grew up, became an astronaut, and fixed the Hubble Space Telescope, all while remaining some kinda’ humble. You can’t help but follow him from Long Island to the bottom of the spacewalk practice pool, then 350 miles up and back. He’s a spaceman through and through; he tells how hard work can take you out of this world.' (Bill Nye, The Science Guy)

'I have read some good writing on space travel, but nothing, I think, quite as wide-eyed and glorious as this... It's completely down to earth - and that's a recommendation.' (Marcus Berkmann Daily Mail)

'This terrific memoir... is utterly gripping.' (Simon Griffith Mail on Sunday)

About the Author
