Science Made Fun: Packing for Mars

Published Nov. 13, 2015

Eating, sleeping, and other biological functions in space.  Meals in a can for years.  And much more.  Packing for Mars(call number: Book Shelves 571.0919 ROACH 2011) is a funny, lively, occasionally disgusting look at everything you wanted to know about space travel, by Mary Roach, one of the best current science writers. We also carry some of her other titles, including Gulp (about  eating)  and Stiff (about human cadavers.)
